The biggest reduction in sound that I ever got was getting an electronic drum kit, and playing with headphones. I only crank a guitar when no one else is in the house (JC-120s are LOUD).

Some quick thoughts—

That's a problem with the channels you're watching. That is, some channels are loud; some channels are quiet. It's not a fault of the receiver.
