It all depends. If you are playing 16-bit material with your DAC set to 24-bit, you get about -10 db of digital volume before it affects sound quality in the slightest. The reason being that the information shaved off by the digital volume control is limited to the extra 8 bits added by playing 16-bit material with 24-bits of headroom.
