Out of curiousity, the other day I decided to connect my amp directly to my JVC DVD Audio player (have never heard DVD Audio before). I set everything up, pressed play, and at first the demo disc sounded great...it was a live recording, so the initial sounds were (thank God) audience applause only. But it started getting louder and LOUDER and LOUDER. Geez, I was lowering the volume on the receiver, I even pressed mute, but it would not respond. Thankfully I regained my head in time to stop the DVD before the music started, or I may have fried all 5 of my speakers. How in the heck do you control the volume in DVD-Audio? I could find no volume reference in the DVD player manual.
