From what I've read, the ATT setting on my source is an analog output attenuation, so I'm guessing the remote control might be using analog. But whatever is being used, I'm very happy with the SQ I'm hearing.
The way I now listen to my music with my headphone system, means I use the sources built in DAC.
From now on I'll only be listening to my CD's occasionally, if at all.
With me now leaving the GS-X's volume control on full, and being able to control the volume with the sources remote, I'm obviously able to lower the sound so I hear no music. So, because some have mentioned about hearing a humming, I thought I'd try listening to some music then turning the volume down until I could hear nothing.
The headphones I was using are my HD-600's and with low gain there was no humming, then I tried medium gain and again no humming, lastly I tried high gain and there was a slight humming but I believe the high gain is only for headphones like the HE-6.
All in all I'm extremely happy with my GS-Xmk2 in every way.
