Topic: ADI-2 DAC FS Auto Ref Level/Low Vol Ref on Phones Out

I'm trying to understand how the "Auto Ref Level" interacts with the Loudness "Low Vol Ref" on the Phones output. With Auto Ref Level turned off, I have the Loudness Low Vol Ref set to -30db. When I switch on Auto Ref Level, the volume readout drops by -15db to make headroom for the potential 15db boost when Hi-Power mode kicks in, which makes sense. What I don't understand is how this affects the Loudness Low Vol Ref. Do I need to adjust the Low Vol Ref by -15db (to -45db) with Auto Ref Level on, or does the DAC make this adjustment to the Low Vol Ref automatically?

Thanks...

Automatically.
