Vega g1/g2 as DAC only (not preamp) into integrated amp questions

#1

Is there some kind of volume bypass? How is that handled if I want to use the preamp section of my integrated and not the volume on the Vega? Do I just crank it to max?

Thanks

That’s what I do. The purist in me would like a bypass, then let my integrated do the preamp work.

I can’t hear any benefit to various Vega pre volume settings after messing around with various combos this afternoon. The Vega has a very good pre section.

Just noticed something new (to me anyway!)… within my Vega g2 system settings, there is now an option called enable volume control. Turn this off.
