X-fi Titanium HD 0db Volume Level

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

So, after spending the better part of a day trying to discern an answer for this, I haven't had any luck. The closest I came were these posts:

forums.creative.com/showthread.php?t=574877

 

But there was no definitive answer to the posters' questions.

 

So, on that note, here goes. Does anyone know what software volume level (0-100%) corresponds to 0db output on the X-fi Titanium HD? I keep finding conflicting reports, with the wikipedia X-fi article mentioning 50% as 0db and 100% as +16db (don't know where they got this from) and a few forum posts stating 100% (although I believe that is for a digital connection).

 

I'm outputting to an external amp (Fiio E9) via the RCA out on the soundcard and am curious. I don't notice any obvious clipping regardless of volume level, but I've set it to 50% for the interim just in case.

 

Thanks in advance.

Nothing huh? I wish this information was easier to find. I really don't understand why it's not in the documentation somewhere.

I have always run my Titanium HD at 100% Volume when playing music.  When I first got it, I did extensive back and forth comparisons with my EMU 0404.  Both the EMU 0404 and the Titanium HD had identical output levels during testing, with both at 100% volume.  If 100% was +16dB on the Titanium HD, I don't think that would be the case as that would represent a fairly substantial difference in output.

Sounds good. Thanks for the reply.
