Installer audio plays welcome message at full volume!

The audio message accompanying the installer plays at full volume causing great concern for audio equipment.

I have my system configured to play music through Pure Music on top of iTunes.
My mac laptop acts as the digital input to a high-end audio system.

I was listening a moderate volume levels.

Out of curiousity I thought I would see what WinAmp was up to these days.
I downloaded the 0.8.1 dmg file and dragged it over to the Apps folder as offered by installer app.

As the music continued to play at moderate level a man's voice announcing WinAmp at full volume level. This caused me considerable alarm and concern for the well-being of the audio equipment.

Some feedback on this decidedly unpleasant introduction to WinAmp.

1. Who said I wanted audio blasting out during install?
2. Why does your audio ignore the settings I currently have in place?
Other system sounds like alerts, etc., play through the current audio settings.
3. It was v-e-r-y loud. The audio system is at risk from that kind of overload.
There wasn't any damage thankfully, but who knows for others?
