Topic: Default starting vol for different inputs

Hello, I am a new user of ADI-2 DAC. Can’t seem to find what I am trying to do from the manual so please may I see if it is possible to set a default starting volume level for different inputs, instead of the “last volume”?

One reason is that for one particular input (coax) I want to bypass the signal hence want to use 0 db all the time. But, for example, if I just finish using coax and want to change the input to USB, I will have to turn the volume down by quite a lot, every time. And vice versa when I change from USB to coax.

Re: Default starting vol for different inputs

You can store and use a “Setup” for each input.
If you enable “ Load Volume with Setup” you get what you want.
Read manual page 29 (DAC), 30 (Pro) or 29 (2/4 Pro SE).

Loading certain “Setups” can be assigned to a button push on the device or remote.
Read manual page 26 (DAC), 28 (Pro) or 30 (2/4 Pro SE).

Watch out:
The  “Remap key” configuration is part of each individual “Setup” and needs to be set for each individual “Setup”.
This can be used to toggle through 2 or more Setups with one single button.

Works like this:
As the button assignment isn’t global, but part of each “Setup”, you can even have different assignments to the same button in each Setup - a nice feature that we can use for the following:

Choose ONE single button that you usually don’t need.
In Setup 1 assign: “load Setup 2”
In Setup 2 assign: “load Setup 1”
Now this single button toggles between both Setups.

This method can be extended to load even more Setups if needed, like:
In Setup 1 assign: “load Setup 2”
In Setup 2 assign: “load Setup 3”
In Setup 3 assign: “load Setup 4”
In Setup 4 assign: “load Setup 1”
Now the single button circles through Setup 1-4, clever, isn’t it?!

As for loading Setups ADI-2 asks for confirmation, a double-push is needed to execute the load.
Holding the button more than 1s, the button‘s original function is available.
Therefore I typically assign the SETUP button to load Setups – sic!

Thanks! This is promising! Let me try a bit soon.
