I never engage the Hi-Power setting and I can't get higher than -10dB with the 600 ohm T1. That's full rock concert level!Ok as a relatively new RME ADI-2 FS owner I could use some advice. It seems like I need to crank up the volume knob on the RME more than I thought I would have to. Listening with Arya's, HD800s, and ZMF Verite Closed. On low power I find myself at around -1 db and on high maybe -12. My first question is this normal? I don't feel like I listen at high listening levels. I mean there is volume there but I am middle aged (omg did I just say that?) so its not hearing loss and I am not a youngin cranking it up to 11. I also could have messed with something that I shouldn't have touched. Second does this mean I should be looking at external amps? On all of my past gear I would rate the power based on how far I need to turn the nob. Maybe if some people could share their volume levels with similar headphones? or what setting I touched that I shouldn't have?
Any advice would be appreciated. I guess I should have started with wow this unit is amazing. I am unbelievably impressed impressed with the performance and I haven't even gotten to far into the menus. This product should get a lot more love then it does.
My money is on the DIM function being engaged.
