Private Concert

magog said My DSD ..i'm listen the volume at 100, but i have a preamp.

always at 100 my DSD

Ah, I understand. There are different ways of looking at this. You could blame you preamp (since the DAC obviously don’t know what volume you are listening at.) But really the problem is that our ears have different sensitivities to different frequencies. The net result is that there is only one volume level for each cut/disk that sounds the best. If it’s an acoustical recording that’s probably the level it was recorded at.

The problem is that we can’t listen to music at that level for long without overusing our ears (especially if we like orchestras or brass bands, etc.)
