I purchased this AV receiver used and have been able to get all of the components working properly (so far) except for the following:
When connected to the FM antenna and listening to music, the volume is very loud. Even when I reduce the volume to -99 dB, the music is too loud. I have minimized the sound as much as I can (pressing SOUND, set INPUT to minimum value). At this point I have just two front speakers connected to the system (large Merak 3 way speaker, 100 watts, 8 ohms); I tried another set of JVC floor speakers and they are too loud as well.
However, when I play a DVD, I am able to reduce the volume to a very low level, just as you might expect. Is there something that I might be doing wrong? Is the system designed to play loudly for FM reception or when just two speakers are attached? Any suggestions that you might have would be appreciated.
