I did some Googling and forum searching, so I apologize if this has been covered but I can't find it.
In Windows 7 with a laptop connected to external speakers, I can adjust my volume:
1) In the app
2) At Windows 7 level
3) At speakers level via knob
If I keep the following (I don't use any EQs or adjustments anywhere):
1) App volume 100%
2) Windows volume 10%
3) External speaker volume 30%
Am I taking a bit hit on quality by using such a low Windows 7 volume? Does it matter at all? If cranked the Windows volume to say 70% but dropped the speakers to 10% to compensate, does this improve quality?
Any tips or tricks would be appreciated! Thanks!
