Currently, I am running my headphones (He-500) from an O2/Modi stack via USB from my Macbook, using the music player Vox. I was wondering what was the best volume setting to set vox on, as I have found it does affect the sound. Also, on full volume setting from Vox, I have to set my O2 to nearly the lowest volume. Another peculiar thing I have noticed, is that if I turn the Vox to full volume, then use the high gain setting on the O2, it results in massive distortion. My question is that, would the headphones sound better with low volume from the player, but high amp volume, or high source volume and low amp volume. I normally run it on the former, but the question was burning inside my head, so I had to get an answer.
