Default Dolby TrueHD over Analog

Anyone know why Dolby TrueHD/Uncompressed PCM over analog connection is noticeably quieter than its Dolby Digital 5.1/DTS counterparts?

Does this not occur for those with a reciever that accepts the uncompressed tracks through HDMI rather than analog?

Just curious because I'm in the market for a reciever and wonder if this will be different on a newer reciever with HDMI.

Q1. Have never seen an official answer to that question but many have posted questions about this codec.

Q2. Reading different posts people have mentioned this happening both over analog and HDMI.

Q3. If you buy a new receiver, you may or may not continue to have this issue. My guess is if you notice it now you will probably notice it with a new receiver.

Personally on my setup I can usually leave the volume at the same decibel level whether its DTS, DD, or TruHD. All codecs being passed over HDMI.
