    Hey all,

    Wondering if anyone out there has any ideas..

    My current setup involves a Yamaha RX-V795a running all sources for switching, including DVD, VCR, CD, PS2.

    I know that it is normal for DVD to be much quieter than VCR or CD etc, and I accept that, but I do wonder if there is such a beast that has some sort of "relative level" output to combat the need to switch sources then change volume.

    It is trivial, and I doubt it's available, but I am looking to upgrade soon, probably to pre/pro, and if there are any good systems that include this...

    I think that the Sima SVS-4 unit has that feature.

    Not what your looking for, but my Onkyo TX-DS595 has the sort of feature I think. You can adjust the relative volume of any input by +/- 12 dB, allowing you to bump the quiet DVD player and keep levels even between sources. If the 595 has it I am sure that there are many higher end systems that have a similar feature. If that is what your asking about.

    My B&K Reference 10 has this feature, I'm sure the latest (Reference 30) does also!
