Which Should Control Volume Pre-amp or Amp?
Hello. With my 2 channel setup, i.e. DAC/Pre-amp feeding a separate 2 channel amp, I have the option to let either device control the volume:
- set the amp on ht-bypass mode and let the DAC/pre-amp control volume?
- turn off volume control of DAC/pre-am and disable ht-bypass mode on amp and control volume with amp?
Is their potential for more distortion or background noise with one way or the other? Thanks in advance!
