DS DAC's output volume gone down


#1

Hi all,

Just yesterday I encountered a rather strange thing: Though I didn’t change the level of the output of the DS DAC (set roughly at 60-65), the output volume went dramatically down. I have this issue when playing via USB and also CDs (via PWT).
Now I have to turn up the volume to almost 100 to get the same volume. This kind of strips me from attenuation reserve… :frowning:
EDIT: I’ve already switched off and restarted the DS DAC; still the same. Ev’tually re-install Roon?

Any idea where the problem lies?

By chance did you engage the attenuator button on the remote?


#3

Possibly… Which one is that on the RC?


#4

The button beside the volume level…marked dac level.


#5

Hm, this can’t be… I’m still using the old RC from the PWT. This one has no attenuation button…


#6

Try the filter button. Turn down the volume first…

Yep, that’s a hit:smiley: It was the filter button! Didn’t know, that it has such a strong impact on the volume level. Thx

Happy to help…
