I have just installed a Pi DAC+ in place of using an external DAC and so far it sounds great.
One thing that I have noticed though is that the output level of DSD is a lot lower than other audio types. It also seems that the quality of DSD playback is not a good as my DAC however this is perhaps just because the level is lower and I have to adjust the volume before trying to compare to non-DSD audio.
Has anyone else noticed this?
Where would the issue lie? Is it a Volumio issue or incorrect settings in alsamixer or the Pi DAC+ itself? Or is it just a DSD thing (although I didn’t have the issue with my external DAC)
All the setting in alsamixer look fine. I am not sure what setting to go with for the DSP setting so I just left the default one selected. All other settings seem fine.
