I was playing a quiet track I chose especially for its quiet property, even when going to +3. Thank you though. I understand bit more. I also know where to set my gain for 3V RMS. It's in the case if I ever decide to use low gain variable into an amplifier, instead of DAC mode. I would only be doing that in the case where I wanted less than 2.5V RMS into an amplifier. I was thinking about an amplifier upgrade, and most have higher wattage than I need, and currently have. It means I could do with my source being quieter than 2.5v RMS. Anyway we just got talking about the output stage with someone on the M-Scaler thread. Then I found again your posts about this. Right now, though I am using speakers in the TT2, and it is easily sensitive to run quietly.
