I am new to the Sonos ecosystem. I am using a Five with streaming and Line-in. On the Sonos app I find that at around 25% on the volume slider the sound is almost imperceptible.I’ve added the screenshot below. This makes it a bit annoying to adjust the volume because the I need to be on the upper end of the slider most of the time and it’s overly sensitive. Effectively I only use the right side of the slider.
Is this the normal behavior? Can it be swapped to something more linear? Is there something wrong with my Sonos Five?
The issue is there for online sources too. Not just line in which I have tried adjusting with the source level settings.
I have not set a volume limit.
I tried the Loudness setting in EQ on and off. I am guessing this just gives a V profile EQ.
Right now I can get around this for the Line-in by setting the Sonos volume to Max and using the hardware control of the device providing the input which is pretty linear but I am not sure if that is ideal for long term use as I maybe driving the speakers amp maxed out at all times.
Thanks in advance for your support.
