Rotel 1572 no sound until volume is cranked to 40 percent

I have a Rotel Ra 1572 that was a demo from a dealer thats on loan to try out.
There is no sound until it is turned up to about 40 percent and it goes to 95 percent max. Is that normal?

Yes, the dealer said it was normal.
Im using it with a pair of Vandersteen 1c's and streaming with a Blue Sound  node 2i and it sounds Fantastic!!
How much did you pay for yours if I may ask?
I started using the Node 2i DAC with RCA cables then switched to coax using the Rotel DAC and yes it sounds better I think.
