PulseAudio volume is only half of standard ALSA

https://bbs.archlinux.org – Hello,since a few weeks my sound volume on Arch is very low but for me it became conscious now. The audio volume is at least half of standard ALSA, possible only a third. When I remove pulseaudio and pulseaudio-alsa and restart the system the volume is right. I use KDE SC 4.8.3 and PulseAudio 2.0 on Linux 3.3.6-1 but I can't say to you when the problem has occurred. I tried to downgrade to pluseaudio 1.1-2 and libpulse 1.1-2 from February with Rollback Machine and i deleted my ~/.pulse folder but it made no difference. Only when I remove PulseAudio and use ALSA directly my volume is right (HowTos)
