I have a A1 and a PS3 that were connected to my Pioneer 1018 receiver. In order to take advantage (and to get rid of some cables) of the new codecs I got the Pioneer xr700 receiver and connected the A1 and PS3 through HDMI to this new receiver.


I noticed that in comparison to my old receiver, the volume level is different (meaning lower). I used to have my PS3 connected through the optical cable (the A1 through the 5.1) and now when I play movies or games, I have to increase the volume significantly to get the same output through the HDMI cable as I got through the old connections. The A1 has the same difference in volume that needs to be increased, while non-HDMI sources (CD player on optical) have the same volume level as on the Pioneer.


Is this normal?


Thanks for the help.

Its very normal for sources to vary in output level. You receiver may have volume trims for each inputl; mine does.
