I pre-ordered a shuffle a couple days after macworld and got it today. seems very cool and I am very impressed with how it interacts with itunes and osx,

my one complaint is that its not that loud. I have tried increasing songs volume in info and even saving an eq seting with the pre-amp all the way up. none of these methods seems to be able to increase the volume. ideas?
