Is it okay to use the DAC to control volume?

These look neat, but aren't exactly helpful as my goal is to control volume (properly) without having to get up, hehe :)

I can't listen SMSL M300mk2 with volume control. Really disappointing. Do not know why. But with fixed level and controlling level from source (PC) is good.

Well, I bought a AIYIMA B01. Looks like an A03 but with a remote, so i can use that if I need. *shugs* lol.

Yes, it’s really no different than usual preamp. Like preamps check your gain before sending signal to an amp.
