Re: Lower maximum volume from receiver which is connected to qled tv

The setting you're looking for is Digital Output Audio Format. On our newest TVs, this can be found at Home > Settings > Sound > Expert Settings. (It can also be found in the Quick Settings.)

If your Digital Output Audio Format isn't set to PCM, like for instance if you have a Dolby option selected, then you will likely notice decreased maximum volume. Dolby options are designed for surround systems (like 5.1 or 7.1), whereas PCM provides great sound quality for stereo speakers (2.1). (A number like 2.1 indicates 2 speakers and 1 subwoofer.)

If you don't have a surround system, you will probably want to select PCM. You'll get much louder volume that way, and potentially better sound quality.
