there are also some stereo preamps where the "loudness" if turned on, (or
it maybe on all the time if there is no switch) "kicks out" part way
through volume control range. So at low levels, loudness is on and at high
levels not. If you happen to be mixing through one of these with the level
below the threshold... you may be monitoring your mix with loudness on.

This was before digital came along in preamp signal chains, newer ones may
be doing a sliding loudness against level thing.

Mixer -> power amp may be the best thing to try. Using a consumer amp for
mix monitoring may give strange results.
