Ok, sorry, I should have figured that out even though mine was the message quoted under yours.

I neglected to use Rosemary's name when responding.  That was the message I was responding to.

I don’t believe I was assuming anything. I merely reported that the stream was  coming through “loud and clear” on my own version of the programme, which is not the new beta, but v5.666. I asked her if she had tried with that version and had experienced the same volume issue, and she said yes.

You are assuming that the station is streaming at its correct volume.  Did you try other streams?  did you stream the station in the old player very shortly before installing and trying the new Winamp?  Never assume.

I wonder if the pre-amp is even working, then?
Did you have this problem with Winamp 5.666?

I tried doing both the system tray and with the equalizer and nothing worked. The volume is as high as it'll go and it's still very low. I don't know what else to do.

That probably has little to do with winamp.
Couple of things you could try if you haven't:
Make sure Winamp has a high enough volume set in your Windows audio mixer. You can get to it from the system tray. If you have Windows 10, you can control the output volume of the various applications that use audio. Not good for fine-tuning in my experience, but if you find a programme always has a low volume, it doesn't hurt to check.
Make sure the volume in Winamp is high enough. Up and down arrows usually control this, as you probably know.

Finally, winamp has a pre-amp as well. This is for boosting the amplitude of sounds that have a low output volume, IE, the volume of the stream or file itself is low. Open the equalizer with alt-g. You'll probably have to ctrl-tab to put focus on the equalizer. Then, hit the grave accent key to increase the preamp power. You don't want to do this too much or else you'll get distortion. Just boost the sound until it's comfortable.

I just tried the new winamp but I don't think it's that much better. I just tried listening to an oldies station and the volume was very low.

Just to let you all know win amp is now on www.ninite.com.  I am wondering if the new version is any better than the older versions? Just let me know and I will install it.
