Hi All,
is it OK connecting JPS LABS Atom Amp 2 to MacBook Air M1 (first edition) headphone out, pushing to the max the volume slider on MacOS and using only the volume slider of the Amp?
I'm asking because I would not risk to damage the Amp input, overloading it.

Cheers,
Stefano

It definitely won't overload if you use low gain (1x). If you need high gain because of low volume/inefficient headphones, the Mac's max output is 3 Vrms, so you may want to reduce the volume in the Mac a little bit.
