It seems this particular flavour of the TD3116 isn't listed in the cheat sheet. Right?

Yep just use the header as done in the image and use the software to select the volume pot mode.

The volume pot was a $2 option when I ordered the miniDSP. A no brainer - it is actually a pot that acts as a voltage divider for the on board 3 volt (?) source and an ADC reads that voltage and applies the volume control digitally in the preamp section. So the volume control is very smooth and scratch free. This means that you can have a remote voltage control the volume.

It works great as a preamp with ability to drive 2 volts - enough to clip most amplifiers. There is also muting capability etc. To enable the volume knob, click the enable volume knob button in the main screen where you pick save and load settings.

MiniDSP is a very good value and sounds very good. I can't hear or measure the difference in SQ with it in place vs out when running it straight thru as a buffer preamp. And if course it sounds good when you apply XO's and EQ. You can hook up your own DAC via i2s if you are picky though.

I don't know exact value of pot but probably anything from 50-100k works. Make sure you connect to the right header. There is a master/slave header right next to it.
