Fixed Volume - Optimum volume setting before fixing?


I’m currently using roon with a preamp so I prefer to use ‘fixed volume’

When I set the volume to ‘fixed volume’ it sets it to the volume percentage currently selected. What is the optimum percentage I should select before fixing the volume?



The manufacturer of the device feeding your pre-amp should be able to tell you how to set it. When I owned a Meridian 808v6 it was 87. My current dCS gear shows 0.
With some devices you just select fixed or variable.

The optimum value is whatever represents maximum output. That will keep the output signal bit perfect which is what you need to be trying to achieve.

Thanks, I’m not sure how to get this information. I’m currently using a Raspberry pi4 (with RopieeeXL) into my Naim Nait 5si.

Thanks for your help. I think I’ve found a fix by setting Roon to ‘DPS volume’ it sets the volume to 0db and as long as I keep it set to that I get full quality. P

Surprised that DSP Volume was helpful. I was going to suggest “Fixed Volume” for "Volume Control and (under Advanced in Device Setup), enable “Force Max Volume At Playback Start”.
