@iFi audio or anyone else, see if you can reproduce this. Don’t wear the cans when starting playback though... if it’s remembering the last setting, have the last setting at a low volume (which I had!) Again, this happened when I: 1. turned down the volume till the knob colour turned off (won’t do this again). 2. left it overnight (7 hours) 3. started playing music before turning the volume up (knob colour still off) 4. music blares from left channel (knob colour stays off). See if you can reproduce.
