DRC = Dynamic Range Compression, it should be an on/off toggle
DRC Range = The amplitude range that the above works on.

Basically, the DRC Range control adjusts how much the DRC adjusts the sound level. When DRC Range is increased, quiet sounds will be louder and loud sound will be less loud (in relation to the quieter sound). When DRC range is decresad, DRC will have less influence on the output. Setting the DRC Range to zero turns off the effect.

That said, I have no idea what optimal settings might be, I don't have a Mac that has that capability.

I also had that issue, and was very relieved when I fixed it. I set my DRC range to be 80%. It seems to be optimal enough by listening tests.
