What is the proper way to control the volume of the music without reducing the quality? Which method does spotify use to control the volume via. built in software control?
It is my understanding that in order to keep the music in its original state of quality that the listener must leave all software volume controls at 100% and use Hardware volume knobs to reduce the volume of the music without disturbing the bit-depth.
For many people, the only option to control volume is to use the built in Spotify volume control, or the Windows/Mac volume control on their pc. In other cases, people are using DAC (Digital Analog Converters) boxes connected to their PC via USB cable. Some speakers have their own volume control knob(s), especially studio monitors. When using a Digital Analog Converter (DAC) you will have the option to adjust the volume with the analog control build into the hardware, or with a separate dedicated volume control knob.
Is it true that Spotify reduces the bit-depth of the music to acheive volume reduction, and what is the best way to control volume without reducing the quality of the music? Thanks, Joseph.
