Speaking about Audirvana’s volume slider, I was under the impression that its optimum value was 0 dB, which has the slider in its position on the right side end of the scale. I was running Audirvana with this volume setting all the time.
Now, I recently replaced my stereo amplifier with a new one, which has a lot more »Watt power«. With this new one, I have to turn its volume knob only very slightly to get a listening volume that suits me.
Which in itself should be fine with me, but it seems, that my new amplifier has some problems with always keeping the correct stereo balance under this »hardly turned volume knob conditions«.
Is that a known phenomenon? And if so, how to deal with it?
