Resonessence Labs Concero discussion/review thead - Page 141

post #2101 of 2108

Hi,

 

I'm a new owner of a used Concero HP. I use Audirvana+ on my iMac (OSX 10.9.5) and I have a question for similar users. Under the Mac's System Prefs/Sound/Output settings, do I choose Concero HP or leave it at Internal Speakers? I should point out that I have another DAC/amp attached to this Mac but it uses a different USB port from this. Thanks.

Audirvana have it's own output selection in preferences. Select appropriate DAC there.

Audirvana doesn't use the system output device, it wants you to select one in its own preferences. Depending on whether you want to use different devices for, e.g., system sound effects and music, this can be convenient or irritating.

So I use A+ own setting for the Concero. What do I set under System Preferences if I don't want any system notifications eg emails etc interfering with the music? Concero, my other DAC or internal speakers?

Then you should set the system sound to Internal Speakers, and mute it if you don't want to hear notifications at all.

So the Concero is perfect except ...
Audirvana+ latest version on iMac and the volume wheel on the Concero as well as volume up and down buttons on my keyboard doesn't work ;-(

Check Audirvana/Preferences/Audio Volume. There are a few options for how to handle volume control. If you set it to 'DAC' the volume control on Concero should work, but the keyboard shortcuts will be manipulating your 'Internal Speakers'.
