Decibel level -- Audirvana is 4-5 decibels louder

Hello,
I did hear an audible difference. Playing with Audirvana vs. Tidal (directly) was louder by 4-5 decibels. I used a meter to measure once I realized what I was hearing.

It’s really hard to discern if the audio differences are due to loudness.

Is Audirvana adding an EQ to the sound? It is hard to evaluate on an uneven level like this.

Hello @Adon, i think you have normalize your volume in Tidal, that’s why you have a difference in decibel between the two apps.
