Which gain control should I turn up? The one on my headphone amp or the one on my audio interface? Right now I have a mix of the two in case of any tiny distortion that may or may not be caused by full amplification on either device. I AB'd both gain controls multiple times on familiar material, and I honestly cannot tell the difference between the two. This is obviously a non-issue, but it interests me. What are your preferred settings? Also, if the amp colours the sound, would increasing its gain increase the effect of its 'colour', or would just running the sound through the amp achieve this effect?
Audio interface = M-Audio ProFire 610
Headphone amp = Meier Audio Corda Arietta
Headpphone = AKG K-702
