I have 2 250's and a single 150, and the 150 is SIGNIFICANTLY quieter 
than the 250's. I bet it's more than 9 dB, actually. It's enough that if 
I watch a recording from the 150 at comfortable volume, and then watch 
one from a 250, the stereo will BLAST you until you can turn it down. 
This is definitely card specific, not channel specific, at least in my 
case. Give me a few minutes and I'll tell you what the difference is.
