is that a bit loss type control do you know? Heard one of those before and its pointless. Who listens at full volume to get gull signal?

Yes itīs lossy,minidsp recomends to have as much signal as possible through minidsp,but I have a nanoDIGI and I use the volume control and I donīt
hear any diffrence.So I think its safe to use it

mmmm lossy volume controls - kinda like choosing which arm you don't need

I think I'll look for a post dsp volume control.

JRKO - my system routing is: turntable - step-up - phono amp - pre-amp - minidsp - power amps. I don't use the volume control in the minidsp. I control it on the pre-amp. I have loads of gain and you do have to be careful to get the gain at each stage right. There's a good article on getting the gain structure right somewhere here at diyaudio.

the volume control in the minidsp is digital. there is a potmeter in the minidsp shop

A proper implemented digital volume control is better than >90% of the traditional volume controls (Hypex' Bruno explained this in some post in the Hypex DSP thread, can't find it).

but if this is a lossy control it isn't 'properly implemented'. Its not like a passive volume control which changes the voltage level but leaves the entire signal intact, its a SQ filter stripping bits as you move away from 100%.

If you want to listen at quiet levels and have a high efficiency system could end up playing mp3 on your top quality system

Is there any further info on the volume control knocking around?
