Essential Info

With so many loud commercials, it's no wonder people change the volume on their TV up to 8 times an hour. But now you can put an end to all that with the TV Volume Regulator. This easy-to-install device regulates volume and delivers consistent audio level through abnormally loud or quiet scenes in a movie, when commercials come on, while channel surfing, or when switching between A/V devices. Simply hook it up once, adjust the volume to your preferred level, and the TV Volume Regulator does the rest. No further adjustments are needed.


What's Included

  • TV Volume Regulator - VR-1
  • A/C adapter & 6' audio cable
  • More Info

    How It Works
    The TV Volume Regulator features advanced digital signal processing that automatically adjusts the sound level from your A/V devices without introducing additional noise .It enables real-time re-mastering and provides consistent loudness and sound quality, by signal-sampling thousands of times per second. With a reaction time of only .002 seconds, even sudden loud noises and sound effects are adjusted. It also features noise reduction technology minimizes "hiss " present in audio, providing clearer, more audible sound during whispers or quiet scenes.

    Fast, Easy Hook-Up
    It easily hooks up using standard RCA (red and white) audio cables between any A/V device (a set-top box like a satellite receiver, cable box, or VCR) and your TV. Once installed, it operates automatically — no further adjustments are needed.

    So far it seems to be working very good. We have noticed excellent volume control during commercials. We feel the product is working as advertised.
    Consumer #1 -- l.i., NY   7/1/2012
    All I have to say is I'm glad i red most of the reviews, as we all should... I have decided to not make the purchase. Thanks reviewers.
    West Coast Reviewer -- san diego, California   11/27/2011
    Looks like the advertiser of this product is monitoring all the reviews. After each BAD review amazingly a GOOD review appears claiming just how easy a 15 year old can install the device right after a complaint about how difficult it was. The charade continues after every BAD review this tells me the product stinks and isn't worth buying. There are way too many BAD reviews making this look like a 50/50 split which is unheard of. Either it's BAD or GOOD there can never be a 50/50 split like this review claims to have. MY advice don't buy it.
    CHARLES -- chula vista, CA   11/14/2011
    I received it very quickly and it was easy to install and works perfectly
    JOHN -- grass valley, CA   11/4/2011
    It does work to a large degree, but sometimes if the incoming volume is very high, there's an annoying pop before it cuts the volume. I do prefer the pop to absurd music screaming at me though.
    DOUGLAS -- mesa, AZ   11/3/2011
    It does work, but the volume often will decrease, and sometimes there is a snapping sound as it does so. At least we no longer get the obnoxious loud volume of commercials.
    Paul -- Oklahoma City   10/19/2011
    Save your money. I've purchased and tried to return two of these-customer service practically nil-device #1 worked a little bit for about two months, then crapped out. 2nd one did NOTHING!
    richard ebbole -- florida   3/9/2011
    doen absolutely nothing...fake. save your money.
    PLAMEN -- brossard, QC   2/28/2011
    This little thing saved my life. It works like a charm and there are no more annoying loud commercials or music themes. Unfortunately it does not come in HDMI sound version. That would have being the best.
    ROBERT -- gold hill, NC   2/18/2011
    Installed on TV per your instructions, it did absolutely nothing. I tried to figure this thing out but with no success.Filed away in closet as an experience that went wrong.If you know what I could do to make this thing work please let me know.
    D. L. -- athens, TN   1/31/2011
    Is not constant.
    Bob Burton -- charlotte, North Carolina   1/25/2011
    I have added this my TV and it did nothing
    Bennie Calabretta -- osburn, Idaho   1/24/2011
    Seems to work. Could do better. We'll see how long it lasts.
    TRACY -- pasadena, CA   1/9/2011
    Generally works as advertized; only "failures" have been an occasional miss on a very brief news bulletin (one phrase/sentence) that did come across louder than the rest of the narrative/programs.
    KYLE W -- chicago, IL   1/7/2011
    Love this thing! No more scrambling for the remote every time a commercial comes on.
    WILLIAM -- corona, CA   10/9/2010
    not what i expected no volume control
    MOSHE -- rishon lezion, XX   10/4/2010
    The device does not fit the Israeli network 110V After replacing the transformatori 110V TO 220V 12V The device does not do the job
    WILLIAM -- marquette, MI   10/1/2010
    This item does what it says it does. Volume levels are controlled without distortion. It is very easy to install and once installed needs no adjustment.
    LEAH -- naples, FL   8/19/2010
    Very easy to install. Makes a dramatic improvement in sound variation, but still requires some volume control issues with music in tv shows.
    WILLIAM -- tacoma, WA   5/22/2010
    A TOTAL piece of junk! It did not work. It does not work. It will not work. Get the picture? Save your money and maybe some day someone will make one that works. Until then, this is not it!
