There aren't more issues related to that volume setting; if you have a receiever just leave it on 25. (this is cleary stated in the manual).
The Tvix is actually a pretty powerful machine when it comes to playing music files. (I use it more for music than movies). A decent set of speakers can also go a long way! (I'm not talking about the mini speaker costco special)
You will notice the difference trust me.
Mp3 playing is screwed up right now; but you shouldn't use the machine to play these types of files anyways because of the sound quality usually stinks (think of recording a cd to an audio cassette- plus why would you spend $500 on a machine to play mp3 anyways?). I would recommend that you stick to Flac and Wav files.
With DTS wav files make sure that the tracks are split to individual tracks; because if there is one long track the machine will start to make a skipping noise on the file after 7-8 minutes. (you can use a program called cue splitter).
Another great program that is free is called DMP power amp. It easily converts your cd into flac format. I noticed that the machine has some problems playing flac files that are recorded in 96khz (vinyl rips). Just convert the files to wav and they play fine. You then can decide which sounds better vinyl or CD.
