Great! the 1.4 has finally arrived so I can use my pi-dac at last…
But the default volumesetting is not optimal, especially for the novice user. The output volume of the pi-dac is set to max = +4db bij default. That’s too much and causes distortion on avarage systems.
By loggin in and typing:
sudo amixer -c 0 sset “Playback Digital” 247
You set it at 0db, then all is right.
Additionally when using mpd hardware control, it should somehow be possible to set a maximum that is suitable for a user. Normally that should be 86% or the afore mentioned 247 value rendering 0db.
Perhaps you would consider this, as the current situation might scare of newcomers.
