HK unit only plays iPod at half volume

Anyone have an issue with the HK unit not playing the iPod as loud as the radio or CD? My '13 CVO has the integrated iPod system. When I play the iPod it only will play half as loud. When I click the volume up past half it will briefly play louder for a split second and then drop down. Does this at each "click" up on the volume past half way. I checked the volume on my iPod and it is at full. I checked the sound check and it is on. I set the AVC everywhere from off to three bars with no difference. I feel like I've tried everything. Anyone have that issue with a fix?

Ride it like you stole it!!

I have same problem and everyone I've talked to has the same issue. I've talked to audio tech's and they say the same thing.
IT'S NORMAL. Nature of the beast.
They state it's because of lack of power from the Ipod unit and original download recording quality. The absolute reasoning, I don't know, but it is a bummer.

Mine is the same way but with CD and Radio as well. The Dealer changed out the radio and the issue has not gone away. Please let us know if anyone has a solution, my bike is 2 1/2 months old! 5400 miles. I just hate to have it in the shop, I cannot ride when it is in there!
