Default Import files at wrong levels

Hi guys,
I canít figure this out, Iím going nuts!!!
When I import a pro mastered track from CD usually via toast I am getting it reading at -5.5 db.

My system is a TDM mix 24, working great since 98.

Iím calibrated to -18db , Iím guessing the probs there somewhere?

Any mastered track from CD is coming in at -5.5 or there abouts, not up at -.3 or where you would expect.

This means that Iím more than likely distorting my final outputs.

Anybody able to shed some light here please!!
I figure I need to adjust the head room.

Mix 24 with 888/24s and control 24.

Thanks in advance!!!
