I am looking to maybe replace my topping D30pro. At the moment i have roon Nuc on usb to the topping, the toslink is connected to my tv. Problem here is volume. I use roon volume through the app, but also the volume on the topping because the tv is on the toslink. So when i use toslink the topping is at -30, when i use roon i have to set it around -10 > 0. And then roon volume.
As you may understand this is somewhat tedious. In a few weeks though my recordplayer will come in. I have no channel yet to hook that one up. So I’m looking for a solution to: a) also channel at least one analogue source, b) hook up my current gear, and c) preferable have volume control per channel with memory.
Extreme bonus would be simple volume control for all sources.
Any suggestions what deck i could consider? My budget would be around 1500 eur if possible.
Many thanks for your input
Too bad, but what a nice combo. Do you use it with ROON? I see potential there but i’m wondering if volume of ROON and this box are aligned - how does that work with the gain? Does it set the MAM i3 into 0Db and go on with ROON volume from there? Or does it work differently?
I did but the fixed volume is no-go. So variable it must be and than my question remains: what happens when you have 2 volume ‘knobs’ in the chain. I have this with my topping DAC with pre-amp. Where the volume is also variable available. When i use ROON i have to adjust both to get the best performance, but when both dials are in 1 control, how does that work than ?
