After faffing around with my comms for hours last week, the one thing that did stay constant was how much louder the 218 sounded when played at 65 then audio through my G68. Has anyone else noticed this? - Applies to all music through Roon, not just MQA

Cheers
Tom

Is that with your G68 in DIRECT mode? (I'm assuming to DSPs in both cases.)

Hi Carl

I'll try DIRECT. I have compared to Squeezebox and Trifield. It seems louder because I now feel the need to lower the volume or raise my voice to speak. I've always felt that Trifield was louder than stereo, but not now with the 218.

I will also compare the Squeezebox in DIRECT mode V Sbox stereo.

Cheers
Tom
