I purchased my first PS Audio product last week, the Sprout 100, and it’s perfect for my setup. I originally paired it with my MA Bronze BX2’s that I’ve had for the last 6 or 7 years and it sounded great, but I picked up some KEF LS50 Meta’s yesterday and now I never want to leave my desk! For anyone out there debating whether the LS50’s are a worthwhile upgrade from the MA Bronze for the Sprout 100, the answer is a resounding YES!
100% of my usage is through the DAC at medium to low volumes. I prefer to use the software volume controls because my keyboard has a wheel that I use for control. What I’m not sure of is where to set the volume control on the amp versus the PC. On my previous amp I just set it to 50% but that’s hard to do on the Sprout because I have no idea what 50% is. For now, I’ve just been turning it all the way up and then counting down 50 clicks of the volume control.
Is this the right thing to do, or am I putting too much pressure on the amp?If this is also your use case, what do you feel works best for you?
