Are you sure the Aune has varible line out?  One review on the web says that it does not despite the manufacturer's claims to the contrary.

Read the comments in this review. Someone corrected him about his statement, the reviewer re-tested the "P-line out" mode and confirmed that it did, indeed, work.

The D2 is a definite upgrade over the D1, however, it is fixed line out volume but you can use the volume control on the A5's, so not a problem.

So long as the unit's analog line output level varies when one turns the volume knob--regardless of precise implementation--it belongs on this thread.  While we are at it, the Audiotrak Prodigy Cube also implements volume in the digital domain.

 

The pdf manual for the Prodigy Cube states "For higher-quality sound, you are recommended to use the analog volume control of Prodigy Cube with the volume of your computer maximized."  

 

So the volume control itself is analog, correct?  But there are options for setting digital volume in the software, right?

 

Basically, I just want to know - when I turn down the volume knob, is this reducing bit depth to lower output volume, or is output volume lowered entirely in the analog domain?
