Thank you for the informative post project86.
I'm wondering if Violectric specifies a neutral volume level, aka 'unity' gain level, at which there's no amplification or attenuation of the signal. Would really like to use this DAC as a standalone unit and feed an amp, without changing anything in the volume as well.
I believe that given their in-depth measurements and specifications, and the precise build quality, they should be able to tell exactly what this level is.
I'm not sure. Maybe Fried Reim will spot your post and answer the question? He does pop in here from time to time to answer Violectric related questions. If not you could always email him, he is very responsive and willing to help.
