Eager to hear your thoughts. Thanks!
I'm reading this thread also wondering about the weak volume on my just purchased 150. Using a non-hd cable box to RCA in on a Panasonic, and optical or hdmi arc to the 150, the max volume sounds like it's turned halfway up. It's definitely not loud. A blu ray from a ps3 to the 150 using hdmi and
hdmi arc was reasonably loud at max, but not cranked up loud. (we were able to have normal, non-shouting conversations, my gf and I).
So, max loudness varies with the source, from what seems to be a half volume setting, to a loud but not very loud one. It's interesting that the volume goes to number 50. Why not 100 for 100%? It seems like there's a loudness governor on that prevents loudness from going above 50%.
I want to like and keep these speakers. But, they seem loudness hobbled. I read sporadic complaints like mine, yet also many positive reviews. Am I missing something? The room they're in is a small to medium size LR that's open with a small dining room. Is the trick to up the sw and center setting (and bass and treble)?
