Hi. I have a sort of low-end receiver that has a built-in amplifier that isn't huge but is big enough for my needs.

The problem? It can amplify my optical digital signal enough to shake the house, but with a line signal I have to turn it all the way up for normal listening!

I know it's capable of more power than that...what gives?

Is this from the same source? There may be a volume control in the device you're connecting.

Analog connections do need more juice to amplify than digital normally, but the difference shouldn't be too extreme. In my set-up it's probably 5-10dB, depending on what's playing.

They are line-level signals, both 2V. It's probably around 50db for me:-(.
