Reading FAQ i see it is possible to have volume control on it. Im desperate to have some kind of volume control for speakers cause i cant afford or cant find something that fits my needs at the moment. Im getting JBL lsr305, which are active, thats why the desperate need of a preamp.
Any chance for a separate firmware release with hardware volume control enabled?
Aside of the preamp out volume control i mentioned, i was already expecting windows to be able to control the tone2 hardware volume (as usual with most dacs?). So it would be perfect for me, because i planned to use it temporary before getting a competent passive knob.
Personally i was confused with the lack of this ability and cant see how it could be that much complex to have it, as far as i know most dacs work that way.
I understand tone2 may be a little different having the separate volume control chip for headphones while being able to output in all outputs at the same time but i really dont think its necessarily a bad thing or confusing at all.
bonus question: would it be possible to have an option on the encoder to switch the knob’s volume control between HP analog and DAC’s digital?
If that was possible it would be aboslute perfection, not much need for a passive knob, at least for me im a digital volume believer. I cant afford 400$ stepped knobs xd.
