Fortunately I haven’t run into this problem many times. You start playback of the program material and set the volume for a comfortable listening level. The chosen level doesn’t have to be that loud, just enjoyably revealing. Then, all of a sudden the recording peaks to the point it seems like it might drive you through a wall or give you a heart attack!! Fortunately I’ve only run into this a few times but it does seem that recordings can be produced with too much dynamics for most home listening situations. Anyone else ever run into this?
