the sound volume is set lower on purpose because it needs to be able to mix in the SegaCD and 32X audio if you have those devices connected

otherwise MAME can't handle the mixing once you add those and you just get nasty clipping instead.

Thanks, Do you know how much the volume is lowered (in dB)?

Basically, beyond the scope of what MAME is going to do about it.
