many times it depends on the source...i am using roon nucleus with dave/blu2.....others using different sources report different volumes etc..the 281 is a really fine amp
It obviously depends on the output of the source and DAC. I also have a V281 => Susvara and I also set the dip switch to -12. However, my volume control on the V281 operates between 9-11 o'clock because my Wyred-4-Sound 2v2SE 10th Anniversary Limited Edition DAC has a fixed output (that bypasses its volume control) of 8.3V in XLR balanced mode. Fortunately, the DAC's output voltage in "fixed output" mode can be independently set and if I set the XLR output voltage to 4.6V then the V281's volume control will operate between 11-1 o'clock if the dip switch is set at -12.
