A85 Input Trim detriment to sound quality?

Hi guys, been doing some reading here, and I can't find much relating to input trim levels and whether raising them (CD - DV27a) actually degrades sound quality... I can't think of a reason why, but I thought I'd ask in case I'm mistaken.

Thanks!

Thank you for that question. I have the same thoughts....!
Also - are there any quality differences in the different inputs?

I've found Arcam to be very reliable in responding to questions about their equipment. Here's the answer we've been looking for:

From:

The input sensitivity or gain adjustment allows you to equalise the volumes between different sources that have slightly different output levels. It will not affect quality of sound in any way.

If you turn up the sensitivity by, say, 3dB, this is equivalent to turning up the volume by 3dB on that particular source. You can then balance the volume of your various sources using this adjustment.

I hope this helps.
