I’ve read that it is best to keep sources at full volume/volume control bypass. However, I am using the VEGA G2 as my preamp going directly to my amp with XLR. Would there be any benefit to getting a high quality passive pre (volume control/attenuator) between the VEGA G2 and my Amp and run the VG2 at full bore?
Perhaps AURALiC’s design makes volume control implementation superior than the conventional?
The output is about twice the typical preamp voltage - a factor?
I can also vary gain before the VG2 within Roon, either using headroom control or volume leveling. Is there pro/con to lowering the gain some there?
Thanks for any input (pun intended ).
