I think it should be just a tad below full volume.

Yes, that's the same here. Perhaps it's attributable to the 64bit processing?
When using a separate DAC/amp is there such a thing as an ideal setting for Neutron's Preamp? I use the Auto again thing (AGP) so should I just be increasing the Preamp level until AGP pushes it back down or is it better to leave the Preamp at '0'?
Or here's something I've just thought of: if I start out with the Preamp set to '0' then this level defines the range I have to play with in the Parametric EQ controls?
I have the software volume level permanently set to 80% as this gives me some room for manoeuvre when using the amp volume control?
For experimentation I'm using one specific track: Sweet Thunder from the album Baby by the band Yello. They're my favourite band and I know all their music inside out. I know, I'm sad. Anyway the album is in FLAC format and the dynamics are awesome (particularly on Sweet Thunder, the clue's in the name).
I'd be interested in any and all opinions on my thinking here, the only exception being "Neutron's UI is ****, just use Poweramp". Don't bother telling me that because I have Poweramp and yes it looks nice and all but Neutron is so much more capable.

Latest issue is that cover art is not appearing on the main player now playing screen. It appears next to the folders in folder view AND the neutron mini widget. Tried various setting changes. Used fo be fine, dont remember if they stopped showing after the paid version instLl install or after. Very frustrating.
NEVERMIND. THEY COME UP AFTER A REBOOT. STRANGE.
This happened again. FYI in case anyone else ends up with this issue, it turns out that if you touch the cover art area in the main player now playing screen, the controls disappear leaving only the cover art, and after a few seconds a very faint icon appears in the top right corner that controls whether the image appears. Apparently I had touched that by accident. Can't believe he would put that there like that. Found it randomly after wasting time messing with the settings again.
Also I set the replay gain to around minus 7 "if missing" to let me lower the volume more. With the standard volume I found that sometimes I wanted the volume lower than the lowest level.
Obviously I was only having an 'issue' because my V-Moda's were actually so sensitive that an amp wasn't really required in the first place.
It's legit of course. I think that's why it is complicated. When you get it right it is very accurate.
What settings do you guys have turned on for maximum sound quality? Do you guys use the Dithering? How does it do 64-bit processing? I thought most DACS are 16bit with the exception of new ones like Note 3 and G2 which are 24 bit DACS. If it's using the processor, only processor I know of as 64 bit is the new Apple.
What is the crossfeed DSP?
Do you guys tweak the Pitch and Temo? How does that work?

I use dithering. Makes a difference on my Q701's, not so much on my M-100's.
I always use 64-bit processing. Can iI hear a difference? I think so, sometimes.
Crossfeed will make it sound as though you are in a room listening through loudspeakers. Also reduces fatigue.
What is your source and what are your headphones?
