I have recently purchased a Sonos Arc and Sub (Gen 3). I notice that the volume level is significantly different between services (TV, Netflix, Youtube). For example:
When watching TV, I need to have the volume very high (60% - 70%) to hear it well. the volume level through on the native TV is much louder than through the Arc. When I turn on the TV the volume jumps up to a good level for a second then drops to the level that I’m talking about. It’s like it tried to set at the right level then something happens.
When watching Netflix, the volume level still need to be Approx 50% but is louder than the TV
When watching YouTube, volume is very loud (what I expect) and only need to have it at 10% - 20%. No need to have it anywhere near half as it fills the room. This is the kind of performance I’m expecting with the new Arc and comparable to my old Bose soundbar which was consistently loud and high quality across all services.
I am connected via eARC from a new, 2020 LG OLED 65inch CX. I’m not all that happy generally with the sound as it’s inconsistent and feel like I’m not getting the best experience from movies.
