I am listening to FLACs on my laptop via Foobar and feeding it through a Magni/Modi combo into my HD 650s.
Am I correct in assuming that I should turn the volume from my computer and Foobar to max and then adjust accordingly via the volume pot on the Magni amp?
Similarly, if I go into the Modi device settings via on my Win7 laptop and choose 24 bit.96 khz mode, would this make the sound quality better over the default 16 bit mode?
If so, are these two scenarios always true? Or are there instances where max source volume and 24-bit mode is NOT ideal for best sound quality?
