I think I have a solution for you..
All you need to do is find yourself an inexpensive Technics Direct Drive TT & see if you can find as many of the RCA Dynagroove LPs as possible . This should definitely solve your problem with having to deal with overly dynamic recordings.
If your posting was a test to see if we could tell you were " pulling our legs " , do I win something ?
Yes like TL you win a prize for posting nonsense. As Jazz 1 says BIS is the only label receiving complaints re sound levels and asks should all labels follow BIS route ?
I have over three dozen BIS reocordings and I have had no problem with their dynamic range. Most have good sound, some very good. I suggest you try the Reference Recordings orchestral recordings, especially the Firebird. That should do a good job of toasting your inadequate system.

I have the BIS SACDs for several of the Vanska/Minnesota performances of Beethoven symphonies. Symphony 9 starts very softly as Beethoven intended. If I have the volume turned up enough to just hear it in my 1300 sq. ft listening room, I am pinned to the back of my chair when the music gets fortissimo. I am certain there is at least that much dynamic range when I hear B9 in the concert hall, but I am MUCH farther from the sound source in a vastly larger space, so the effect is literally not so much in my face. So I suspect BIS has it right, but it's enough of an annoyance that I usually choose a different recording (with better singers!).
