I think that this is digital attenuation which is pretty good these days. (Some high end DACs offer it too.) All things being equal I prefer to adjust volume from the GS-X mk2 in pre-amp mode, but I admit to sometimes using the Foobar volume control via the iPhone MonkeyMote app to turn down volume - at least until I can unlazy and walk over to the GS-X. It is quite transparent and it can be handy.
The GS-X mk2 is a lovely pre-amp. I use it a lot.
Yes, I think that's what it is. I must say, though, that the Lab.Gruppen is a temporary solution. I haven't had time to dwell too much into various power amp options, so I grabbed the IPD 1200 that was offered to me by the local dealer to very favourable conditions. But I'd like to switch to an analogue amplifier at one point. I am sure, the GSX-Mk2 pre-amp will pair well with just about any good power amp. Right now, I am pretty happy with the current setup.
