Hi guys recently bought Denons D2000 cans and FiiO e11 connected to Xonar Dx sound card. I dont know what should i set the xonar volume level? 100% 50%? i want to set the pc level for good and manipulate only the FiiOs volume level.

Around 75% - 85% on your soundcard will be fine. Some go to 100%, have a practice and you'll hear a sweet spot. Basically you want to hit 100% volume on E11 before any distortion, if there's no distortion bring the soundcards volume up further....further etc.... If there's no distortion great, if you hear it back off a few clicks and leave the soundcard set there.

You want to set your soundcard volume to 75% and turn your E11 volume down further, don't run 50/50 that's why it's to loud, You want to set the soundcard to 75% Then use 25% on E11 for example.

As I've said there's a sweet spot, But remember if you go up higher on your soundcard the E11 will need less volume, less battery, to reach the same volume levels.
