Optimal Volume For iOS Streaming Audio to Apple TV

Hi. I'm using Spotify on iOS devices to stream audio to an Apple TV, with an optical connection to a Peachtree Decco2 2-channel amp. I was wondering if there is an optimal volume level for the iOS device to ensure distortion-free sound. I know that using Bluetooth in my car, I have to set the iOS device volume at about halfway to reduce distortion, but I don't know or think that applies to Airplay. So far it seems that cranking volume on theh iOS device to max seems to have no impact, but I wanted to get others' experiences.

(Spotify is set to Sound Quality = Extreme by the way)

Thanks!

Jonathan

That's a good question! Given how much the sound is comparably reduced to other sources whenever I first turn on Airplay or plug into my car, I always got the impression the iPhone volume slider acts like an attenuator. Crank it up!

I always leave the iphone volume all the way up for this stuff for the reasons you mentioned.

Thanks!

Seems like 100% volume on the device is the consensus. Appreciate your help!!
