Currently the limiter only limits if and when the final output to the DAC exceeds the maximum allowed value. It generally doesn't prevent distortion arising from preamp and equalizer. See the discussions here : I propose to change this : The limiter should take action when the output of the DSP exceeds the maximum value, thereby effectively preventing distortions, and that then wouldn't depend on the volume level.
Hi, I've noticed that when I use Poweramp with an external DAC (AudioQuest DragonFly), the volume has to be maxed out on both the phone and my external amp (Schiit Lyr 2) for it to be listenable. I've noticed that USB Audio Player Pro has a "Hardware Volume" setting that lets you change the volume of the DAC, which boosts the volume to a much more reasonable level to where I don't have to max out the volume knob on my external amp. Is this the same feature as the "Preamp" setting in Poweramp? I would much prefer to use Poweramp over USB Audio Player due to its better UI, but I want to max my volume on the phone without worrying about clipping or distortion. Is USB Audio Player's Hardware Volume setting the same thing as the Preamp function in Poweramp?
I bet its possible to use the preamp equalizer feature for stepless volume adjustment. Theory: You turn the volume wheel and PreAmp increases until the normal step begins and resets. Over and Over... If you know what I mean. (I`m not english)
