I’ve been away for 2 weeks and my whole system was shutdown.
After powering up everything I updated Roon to 1202.
Started playing this afternoon and was under the strong impression that for the usual volume knob position my system was playing way louder than usual.
As I measured the dB before my departure I had a valid point of reference.
Usually my volume knob is around 11 o’clock position, corresponding to -24db which gave me SPL around 70-75 dB with peaks to around 85 dB.
Today to obtain the same SPL, and the same subjective impression my volume was at 9 o’clock corresponding to -32 dB.
So a loss of 8 dB to get my usual level of music and also measured by the SPL meter.
As nothing changed in my system except the Roon update I’m completely lost to understand what’s happening.
I didn’t fiddle with the settings, my signal is lossless from beginning till the end.
