Patent Number: 7,085,477

Title: Television apparatus

Abstract: A ROM 51 stores a plurality of volume set values and a plurality of level change rates corresponding to each other and an IC 5 accepts a volume set value specified by a user when carrying out volume setting. Moreover, it is decided whether a reproducing object is a CD or a DVD depending on a decision signal output from a loader section 1. A level change rate corresponding to the volume set value is output to an IC 2 if the reproducing object is the DVD, and the level change rate corresponding to the volume set value is adjusted at a predetermined adjusting rate and the level change rate thus adjusted is output to the IC 2 if the reproducing object is the CD. The IC 2 changes the level of an analog signal indicative of a voice input from the loader section 1 at the level change rate and outputs the signal to an amplifying circuit 3.
