    Set Volume on controller

    On Duet controller go to "Settings" then "Audio Settings" then "Fixed Volume" set to 100% then push control button to activate.

    I can't help with the SbS, but whilst you are working on the SONY amp, see if it has settings for input gain on the socket you are using. I seem to recall that SONY adopted a higher line-in voltage than other manufacturers (perhaps 1V), resulting in non-SONY devices sounding quieter. My amplifier (QUAD 77) has input sensitivity adjustments, 100mV, 300mV and 775mV
    With the QUAD volume set to 20 (range: 0-32) and the SB Volume set to 100%, I can shake the foundations... (literally, I found the receipts for the underpinning, yesterday). If I can find the QUAD manual, I'll see what my input sensitivity is set to, but the default is 300mV.

    Duet is almost 2v as most squeezeboxes and most modern sources ?

    However using replaygian and smart gain reduces volume with about -10dB on modern music turn this off .

    Also how is it conected , if the amp has digital inputs I strongly sugest using those for best result toslink or spdiff , op is mentioning bluray etc and other digital sources.

    The analog inputs on many ht reciever are a bit low just to make sure that no clipping occurs and the better ones have selectable input sensitivity (as described by Swiftie ) , but in 99% of the cases the analog in is converted to digital inside the reciever .
    So their really is no piont feeding a typical HT reciever an analog signal ,the inputs exist for legacy sources like your VHS and tape deck . So the result via analog in is suboptimal ,best case you hear no difference but SQ could suffer .

    I would also argue the Quad has to high input sensitivity the are a bit 70's sometimes , but very good stuff peter walker was a hero ( in the els63 manuals there was mentioned that no special cables are needed , yes ! ).
    yes in 70's 0,5 v could be typical source output today it's closer to 2 volts ,but there is no real standard ( a pity imho, this is often used to the customers disadvantage , have you ever seen a sales rep adjust the volume when you compare sources ? )
