Since I have high efficiency speakers, I listen with the 20dB attenuator engaged as much as possible because this results in the lowest noise floor.
However, I do periodically encounter recordings for which the ideal volume is just beyond ‘106’, and I need to disengage the attenuator. Of course, I first have to reduce the volume to ~ 60 to avoid blasting the sound.
It struck me that it would be very convenient if toggling the attenuator via the ‘filter’ button would automatically adjust the software volume setting so that the output loudness would remain comparable to what it was with the previous attenuator position.
Not only would the chances of accidentally blowing up the speakers be eliminated, but one would in effect have a continuous volume control between the two attenuator ranges.
I was wondering if this is something that would be possible to implement as part of a future firmware update.
