Harware Mixer on Volumio: YES (but not needed)- use the build-in volume control instead - much better.
HW Mixer string:
Comments: Working out of the box. If the DAC is turned off while Volumio is playing -> Volumio will not play any track when the DAC is turned on again, and Volumio needs to be rebooted before working properly again. If Volumio is not playing when turning off the DAC, it does not have any problem working after powering up the DAC from standby. Waiting for the Digione to see if it a USB-only problem.
