It is with considerable regret and much embarrassment that I am
only now writing regarding all the posted responses to my *ancient*
(2009 Aug 19!) query! :(
I really *do* appreciate all the suggestions from many of this
Overall, it appears that the situation is quite complex:
volume, hardware/software, s/n ratio, distortion, DACs, etc.
I.e., no easy answer or "best practice".
These comments, however, seemed to stand out:
| Patrick Shirkey
| Either way I find I am constantly adjusting the levels
| to meet the situation.
| Arnold Krille
| You actually want to set all the volumes apart from the last one
| to a high value.
Time permitting, I intend to re-read all the comments and try to
decide on just what approach I will take.
Again, sorry for the long delay, and *thanks* for all those who took
the time to share their experiences with me and the ML!
