I'm trying to setup a stereo system with the equipment that i currently have (Bifrost+Asgard). I just purchased a Genelec 6010A and haven't received it yet. I was planning on optical out from Mac Mini---> Bifrost----> Genelec 6010A. However, I found out a problem, if I do so I will not be able to control the volume as Bifrost is a dedicated DAC. I was thinking about disabling all effect sounds from my Mac and controlling audio volume through iTunes/Fidelia. But, I did some research and people say if you were to do so it would downgrade the quality of audio significantly
Or should I just drop the idea of connecting it to Bifrost and just plug it in my Mac Mini, regardless of the audio quality.
Any simple ways that I can fix this? Or any other recommendations? I'm all ears:)
BTW, if I purchase 5040A subwoofer, and use it's volume control function, will it solve all of this?
