I'm currently having problems with volume control on my setup. Right now, I have Foobar with wasapi running to a EF2A amp with the default USB-DAC to my Grados 325is. The problem is, the EF2A amp is very loud. I am trying to reach the 9 o clock position on the amp volume knob, but the songs get too loud. If the volume is set too low on the amp, there is a slight channel imbalance. My question is, does lowering the volume with the windows slider affect sound quality at all? I've read that it is best to keep volume at 100% for foobar and windows. I'm running windows 7 and i heard they redid some things with the volume control so I dont know if its any better.
thanks for any of your insight guys
