I recently got my malfunctioning BHK Monoblock back from repair and it is sounding fantastic.
So I’ve been doing a lot of listening on my system (DSDac/BHK Pre/BHK300s/PMC MB2 SE Speakers).
I find that most of the time the volume level on the BHK Pre is between about 12 - 18.
Occasionally if there is some older or more quietly recorded music (or if there is also ambient noise e.g. if I’m listening during the day) I might push the volume up into the early 20s.
My question is, am I making the most of my BHK pre using these low volume levels?
Would I better off lowering the volume on the DSDac to say 80-90 and use more gain from the preamp? Does it make any difference?
I would like to be able to adjust the volume in smaller increments by lowering the DAC volume, but not if it will degrade the sound.
