Yes and no. You better have a DAC with a low output or volume control of some sort. With the PWD2 at full output using the 846 I can't get passed 9 o'clock and those first steps are huge. But since dropping the PWD2 15dB (70/100) I'm closer to 12 o'clock where steps are small. Low gain obviously
Thanks. Foobar of course gives me fine 1db adjustments which I will use as necessary but I would rather not. My current DAC is 1980s Philips NOS technology and features an on/off switch. When I get my next (balanced) DAC I will keep the issue of volume control in mind.
