    we have an AC/DC on location and it doesn't even have an attract mode... anyway that machine is meant to be played loud...

    if the owner agrees with your brother then he should reach out to the OP, who will more than likely just remove the machine since playing an AC/DC you can't hear would be pretty boring

    also I love the people here suggesting destroying and/or messing with the machine in some way, when there are no location machines left to play don't complain

    Quoted from zizzlemeplease:

    if its too loud ya aint old and deaf enuf!
    seriously, there is such a thing as too loud, the operator should listen to peoples opinions about his game at a location, and adjust for it. I like LOUD but I'd get annoyed pretty quick if the same sounds kicked in to drown out everything else all the time. if it makes talking or ordering food and drinks difficult, it might even steer some people from wanting to return to a location, would be very bad use of 2 yards worth of floorspace. the establishments workers and owner would know if its too obnoxious.
    if an operator refused request to turn it down some, "seeya!" have fun finding another location to move it to and abuse peoples eardrums with, if it's harmful to what'd be normal business. its supposed to be about making MORE money, not less. I love pinball, but can see this point too.

    like everyone has said over and over, if this were the owner complaining to an op that would be one thing, but a random staff member? ya, I would ignore the random staff member also... maybe even tell the owner about it (owner may not like his staff trying to make decisions for him)

    Quoted from generica:

    Read my comment before replying to it please. The owner has veto power over everything related to the pin. Its his building. If he doesn't care, doesn't control his staff, that gives them the veto power. In my experience as a service person most owners don't care if their staff is messing with the game.
    The fact of the matter is, the op doesn't control the game. The people who are around it and the people signing their checks do.

    so if I go to your place of business and decide your prices are too high I can pay less? since it seems control transfers pretty loosely in your world :p
