Use Gain Offset to Regulate Volume

Avoid the annoying volume switch between television programs, DVDs, and even different CDs using your receiver’s gain offset feature.

This difference becomes even more apparent when two discs are played back to back on a carousel CD player or from your favorite MP3 jukebox.
