I see a similar topic was started some time ago, but without any conclusion.
I have a laptop connected to a pair of Devialet Expert Pro 440 monoblocks using Roon’s implementation of Devialet’s AIR driver.
I shut off the laptop when not in use, meaning at the end of every day. On bootup of the laptop and startup of Roon, the volume is set at the maximum level I’ve adjusted for -15 dB.
I can’t change it unless I’m actually playing a music file - meaning that as soon as I do it’s at full blast. I tried muting the Devialet but that disables the volume control in Roon.
Under Volume Control, it would be nice to have a Startup Volume setting - one that would be used every time the program is started.
This is something that can be found in competitive programs, and is a great feature. I don’t know how the Server version behaves, and it doesn’t really matter much. I can’t be the only person on the planet that uses Roon from a laptop and boots up every day.
Despite this issue, I did buy a lifetime subscription. The sound quality is better than with the competitive product and the controllability is better.
Just need that startup volume setting…
