KDE: I can't set max volume to 150% after 5.19.3 update

I installed the update recently and noticed that my maximum volume is now capped at 100%.

If you right-click on the speaker icon and hit Configure Audio Volume, there is no longer the option to set maximum volume at 150%.

I really appreciated the extra volume headroom incase I was in a noisy enviornment or if someone was sharing a video shot on their phone where the volume levels are really low.

How can I get that option back?

Thank you

If you click on the Audio icon in panel Tray, depending on your output device, you can enable it.


To be honest, i never had to do that, and 70% for me is still laud sometimes :slight_smile:


That did it! Thank you.

You're absolutely right, I usually have it at 60 and rarely take it over 80.

But there have been a few instances where I've needed to take it over 110.

I just wish KDE would do a better job of communicating with its users when it moves settings around.

It seems the 5.20 version will bring some more changes that might not resonate with every one of us. We can hope for better indeed :slight_smile:

Oh no, i love the sense of intrigue & mystique.
