When I was in college I had the S3 set up side by side by an old direct tv at my parents house in the summer to get HD OTA, and I would have to turn the volume way up on the S3, but once you switch back to the directive it would be so loud it was ridicules if you didn't turn the tv down before switching inputs.
With my latest set up on my new samsung plasma, the premiere bar far has the lowest volume levels, my apple tv has the highest, and my blu ray player, well, that's a mixed boar of always adjusting the volume. I keep having to turn the volume up during quiet conversations during a movie because you can barely hear it, but as soon as any action starts taking place and there is sound effects, background music or explosions it goes so loud it should be illegal.
