I've sometimes wondered how volume control settings correspond to the levels Amir shows his measurements at. So, like when we look at the dashboard for a balanced output DAC test and see 4 volts out, SINAD -119dB, is that at maximum volume, or just turn the dial until output reads 4 volts, and that could be max or 3/4 or 1/2 or whatever for that unit? I realize he likes to show the readings at 2 volts output for a unit with unbalanced connections, and readings at 4 volts output for units with balanced connections so we can compare apples to apples. But a lot of times in a system there are several controls for volume, both hardware and software. So if I want to set and forget a unit by placing the output at the knee of the power output curve, for example, is there a way to tell at what volume setting Amir found that to be when he tested?
