Default Low volume through my AVR

When I play my music from my iphone through my AVR, the volume is low. I have to turn the volume to 20-30 to hear it. I use a cable like this one to connect to the AVR.

Is there a way to boost the volume? Loudness control, sound fields?

Pioneer VSX-517 AVR

Probably not. You'll probably just have to deal with it. Every source I have required a different volume. Music from my Mac Mini is usually around -40db, DirecTV is usually -25db, and Blu-rays are around -30db. These are all at leveled that do not disturb the wife and kids.

It may seem like a PITA, but it's all good, IMO.

Do you have your iphone close to max volume when your listening to it through your AVR, I find if I am listening to my ipod through my home theater (stereo) I have to have my ipod at or near max volume and my 110 watts per channel Pioneer at least at -25 or - 20.

It should be noted that unlike Hammie I use the amplification that is provided by my AVR.

ipod to AVR not exactly what I use but mine is that same type of deal.

Good point about the volume on the actual iPod. I had to do this when I was using my iPhones headphone port in my car before. The iPhone had to be up all the way in order to get a decent volume through my car stereo.

I will try different volume levels on my iphone the next time I connect it to my AVR.

Adjusting the volume of my iphone solved the problem. Thanks for the help.
