I'm hoping to replicate a similar behaviour with the Asgard 2 from my current setup.
My current setup is Sony UDA-1, connected to unpowered speakers (via terminal cables); when I unplug any connected headphone, the DAC would switch the sound signal to the speakers. However, IT SEEMS that the volume is set "just right"; as in 10:00 on the volume knob is just right to drive the HD800; when I unplug the headphones, it sounds "just right" too on the speakers. Is this something I'd have to figure out the "sweet spot" between the volume on whatever powered speakers I will get (most likely something cheap like MAudio AV30) and the Asgard 2?
