Meridian Explorer 2 using USB into Laptop.
Description Of Issue
‘Device Volume’ in settings, does not allow volume to be adjusted(default is too loud). This allows MQA to be Authenticated.
if i change setting to ‘DSP Volume’ then i can alter the volume but this does not allow MQA authentication.
Previously using ‘Device Volume’ setting, i could adjust the volume using the volume bar in Roon and still get MQA to be Authenticated.
This seems to be an issue with 1.8 as i have not changed anything else in my system.
I am having a similar problem with one of my Meridian MS200 using speaker link out. I have a total of four of these units throughout the home. The unit in question like all other units worked approximately as device volume control in ROON. This particular one is putting out full volume for some reason. I am in the process of comparing the Sooloos and ROON settings in all units to see if it is due to a setting change after 1.8 update.
i noticed i was having volume control issues outside of Roon, so i have re-installed the Drivers for my Explorer 2 (even though they were up to date) and the ‘Device Volume’ setting i was having problems with, now seems to be resolved.
I can now change the volume within Roon, whilst still maintaining Full MQA passthrough.
