For several years, I’ve used Squeezebox Touch (SBT) as my streaming devices. The SBT has built-in volume control over its digital outputs. It all works perfectly. But then Logitech abandoned support for additional music apps and Beats/Apple killed MOG.
I’m wanting to take TIDAL for a trial spin using the optical out connector on my Apple MacBook Pro. It makes the connection, but I can’t figure out how to turn the volume DOWN. The Sound control under System Preference shows no volume control over the laptop’s digital Headphone port. Anyone here using their Mac as a streaming device using the Headphone port?
I was hoping to keep this simple. I’m aware of the work-a-round using the SBT+Logitech Media Server software plus ickStream, but was hoping to avoid that solution.
