When you connect to the LO, the volume control is in essence a gain control.
The fact that the gain can be adjusted is very handy.
What is your normal listening level?
With the lo connected to my intruder, it can reach ear bleed levels....
When I use my intruder as a dac connected to my new Dell, the volume is very low... the low voltage usb output from the laptop is not allowing it to reach the same volume level compared to the LO of the dx90.
On the other hand, using the ho from your dap will cause too much voltage input into the amp will give you louder volume.
Use the LO at max volume and adjust your amp to your preferred listening level.
