There is no 13 in Rockbox....the highest it goes is 6. And my files are all ReplayGained to 89db, with the pre-amp is set at 0.0. I don't know, maybe you have a pre-cut dialed in that I don't.....but -13 volume, even with the bass and treble both at 0, is still pretty loud....I wouldn't want to listen to more than a song or two at that volume.
haha I just noticed that it only goes up to positive 6 dbs, damn you are scaring me now. Yeah I normally listen to my music on the clip + with zero bass/ trebel boosts and volume at lower 20s dbs for IEMs but was messing around with it on my S500s to get that lush bassy FX40 sound and that setting was gold for me. Well I turn it down to -14 sometimes when the music is really well mastered but it's on -13 for most of the time, am I going deaf??? ahahahahaha
What volume do you set your sansa when listening with your S500s with no amp? For me when the volume is on lower 20 db is too thin/ soft. So it has to be in the lowered to 16 to 13 to get the right sound. Trying it now on zero treble/ bass and on volume -13 sounds like my ipod classic/ nano, kinda thin in sound, not enough body. Damn you have me crazy concerned now. ha
