This is exactly what happened to me. Jay this is the best explanation I have read on this. And explains what happened. I have used audio gear for many years with great success and on the cam got caught big time with severe distortion even though the level controlls appeared to be in the correct range. It took a lot of post production on the audio to retrieve it it to a moderate standard. But as you would know it is never as good trying to recover after a mistake. I now use headphones.

You are so right jay and this is something that is so important, yet ignored in the sony user manual.
I learnt so early with my pdx that I have had a partition added just for my headphones!
Cheers all

Sony has a history of non-accurate audio metering with their pro-audio gear. I have a 10-year old Sony portable professional DAT recorder, and it sometimes pulls off this great trick of not showing clipping when recording, and then when you play back the tape on the same machine you can see that the levels actually hit 0dB. It' a terrible thing! So I wouldn't be surprised if the PDX10's metering is not accurate. Probably some cheap tradeoff in the processing that displays the input level, perhaps it's not sampling the signal often enough or something like that.
