    I have mine, so that on the loudest part of the song, it might just flash past green .

    If it is flashing red all the way , it will be distorting.

    Also, i would turn the volume down on your mixer, and up on your hifi.

    Yeh i'd say 3/4 volume on you Hifi, then use the Master volume to your full advantage!

    AS for channel levels, try to keep out of the amber, i take it as its a numark that'd be right at the top of the meter? if so, then as above, it'll start to distort past that

    Keep everything up to "0" or below never in the red otherwise your speakers will blow, turn down the gain on all channels and the master, turn your the volume to max on your hi-fi (depending on how good the hi-fi is you wouldn't want it to blow), put your channel gain volume up so the bar is peaking "0" and then just use the mater volume to a desired volume but never go in the red. This has always worked in the past when i have used a hi-fi system.
