Default A question about the EU volume cap.

I have quite a few Sony Walkman DAPs but two of them I own which were both bought in the UK have different volumes. The DAPs in question are my Sony S639f and Sony A845. The volume at 20/30 on my S639f is equivalent to the maximum volume of 30/30 on my A845. I then set both DAPs into test mode and came to a startling discovery. On SPSET on the S639f it is set at EU (SPS:OFF) yet on the A845 it is set at CEW (SPS:ON) which explains why my S639f sounds louder than my A845. Does anyone know what CEW stands for?

Anyway it looks like Sony have got worse with their volume capping on new European Sony Walkmans.
DAP - Samsung Galaxy WiFi 4.0, Cowon D3, Sony X1060, Sony S639F, Sony A865, iPod 5G (Rockbox), Cowon J3, Sansa Clip+(Rockboxed), Sansa Fuze (Rockboxed), Apple iPod Touch 4G 64GB.

IEM - Sony EX310LP, Panasonic HJE900, JVC FXC80, Sennheiser CX300II
