I don't know for sure but I don't think so. I should have said at 50%+ it's starting to get loud, at 75% it is pumping and close to too much so it sounds like this is similar to yours. Thanks, that confirms that aspect is fine then it would seem. I've been listening to it between 9 (1/4 turn) and 2 o'clock depending on source+style. I brought this up as I had read in some posts that there are others with similar setup who were uncomfortable listening with it set past 9 o'clock so I was wondering if mine was particularly off.
