I am guessing your volume control potentiometers (left and right channels) are not linear at the lower end of their range. Is your integrated still under warranty? Even if not, give manufacturer a call - couldn't hurt.

The earlier replys are right on. Did this problem just start or did you just recently notice it? If it's a new problem it probably not a manufacturer's defect but rather a dirty potentiometer. If that's so you can try two things. First turn the stereo off. Now rotate the volume control fast and frequently over its full range. This might clean the point contacts. Next level is open the component and look at the potentiometer on the inside. If it has any air gaps use one of those compressed air can cleaners to blow out the dirt or dust. If the problem has always been there then the factory is your only solution.
