    There is no reference level standard for mixing music or other audio material. Different genres of music are mixed with different loudness references. Further, mixing/mastering engineers have trended over the years toward creating material that sounds louder and louder. If you listen to a song recorded in the 1960s and then immediately follow it with one recorded last year, you’ll probably find the latter song is much louder. If this is a problem for you, we’ve created a solution called Audyssey Dynamic Volume. It’s a technology that intelligently adjusts the level so that you won’t have to ride the volume continually. You can enable it in the Audio Dock using the iPhone/iPod app under Dynamic Volume settings.
