More flexible volume control suggestion


#1

One feature that I would love to see in the next firmware version for DAC Snr is an individual volume setting maintained for each input. I normally play music from an Aurender streamer at a volume setting of around 60, but sound from my cable TV box needs to played at only 40. BBC radio from a DAB tuner requires yet another setting. It’s really irritating to have to juggle with the volume control when switching inputs and to remember to turn the level down before switching over to avoid a blast from the loudspeakers. On switching to a different input, I would simply like the volume to return automatically to the level that was set on the last use of that input. It’s a feature that’s provided on other DACs and preamps and should require minimal effort to implement. If necessary, a choice between that and the present global volume control could be offered in the settings.
