Hello there,
I have converted some vinlys to my mac and then burnt them to a CD, but the sound volume on the CD is very low, different to a CD that you buy from the shop. Does anyone know how to increase the sound when you burn a CD or convert from vinly to the PC. THanks in advance regards.

An amplifier (or pre-amp in this case) provides gain -- it amplifies the signal, it increases the voltage (or power) level. A gain control adjust how much the amplifier amplifies. Your built-in preamp apparently has variable gain, which is unusual for a phono preamp. Gain controls are most common in microphone preamps.

A volume control is a decrementing control. The signal level is reduced at anything less than the maximum setting of the control. Most amplifiers and preamps are fixed gain devices; 10 to 12 dB is common for line level preamps. The volume control reduces the input signal level so you can get less than the fixed gain out of the unit relative to the output of the device driving the amplifier.
