    Hi guys
    I ve just purchased the pioneer dv990 home theater system and i m really dissapointed.
    When I play music cd s it s performance is outstanding and it can blow your ears off, even in the half volume level.
    The problem is when when I m playing dvd s.
    Even if I set the volume to the max I don t get a decent power not only from
    the sub but from the speakers too.
    In loud scenes even the explosions are not loud as they supposed to be.
    I don t get it.
    Why the cd s play so loud even on the half volume?
    i ve tried setting the channel levels as high as they can get but no result.
    Midnight Listening Mode is off.

    It s driving me crazy.
    I know that this system is very powerfull because I ve heard it on stereo cds.
    But on dvd s i can t hear it s power.
    Please help me.
    I m really desperated. :mad:

    Don't know if this helps and may not be related to your specific problem, but as far as I understand CD will sound louder than a DVD audio mix (I suppose it's down to the way they're encoded etc). I've got the Denon 500 and audio CD's are loud at around the 25 - 30 setting, but DVD's need to be played at around 45-55.
