    When I'm in iTunes on my MB I want it to be loud but I cant. iTunes and OSX doesnt allow me to raise the volume as much as I want to. But when I'm in VLC I can raise the volume reaally high. What can I do? :confused:

    I've noticed iTunes to be a little on the quit side as well... Anyone have any insight on this?

    The "volume" setting in VLC is actually just a kind of a boost that lets you raise volume above 100%, but quality suffers slightly when you do this, so it's not comparable with general system volume in OS X. You can't make the maximum OS X volume level louder.

    But since you are only concerned about iTunes, you can use a similar boost as in VLC - open the iTunes equalizer (under window menu), turn it on by checking the box and play with the preamp. Hope that helps.
