Topic: ADI-2 FS Volume Pot Problem
I've recently became an owner of ADI-2FS, as a cheaper solution of ADI-2 Pro FS. I've also bought the Digiface USB to connect ADI-2FS to the laptop.
After connecting the headphones (Audio-Technica M50) I was disappointed that the level settings switch (+4/+13/+19) does not affect the volume pot. The headphone amplifier is very powerful and the slightest rotation of the volume pot already gives a lot of volume.
The problem is that at the beginning of the adjustment the pot adds volume in the right channel and then on the left channel alternately instead of simultaneously. So, to make the adjustment range more convenient, I have to attenuate the signal at the digital input reducing the output of Digiface USB in Totalmix, which is not acceptable in Hi-Fi.
On the other hand, the pot never turns off the volume completely, at the minimum, music is always heard in both channels on low level. But that's ok.
How can I fix the strange behavior of the cheap pot without asking DIYers?
