I've one of those cheap DVD players as transport hooked up to an external DAC. The volume control still affects volume. Since I don't think that S/PDIF carries volume information, can I assume that the player is actually changing the sound data? That would mean it's reducing dynamic range!Ironic that there's a separate dynamic range menu... Can I assume then that the maximum volume setting (which is the default one too) would be the one sending the unmodified data?
