A little bit about my set up first: I am using the Jaycar rebrand of the Brainwavz HM-5 headphones and a Schiit Magni Amp.
Generally, I know that you should keep the digital volume on the computer at 100 and manipulate the physical volume on the amp. However, this does not leave much movement room on the amp because it very quickly gets to the point where it is not comfortable (Less than a quarter turn).
I've played around with changing the volume on the computer and then turning the volume on the amp higher than "normal" with great success to the sound quality which before almost sounded distorted especially with bass (and I listen primarily to electronic music, which is very sensitive to audio equipment and settings).
How high can the amp volume go before it blows the speakers? Is that threshold far above what my ears could handle or do I have to be really careful?
Thanks in advance.
