Question Best volume setting on compter for external amplification?


Well-known Member
So I've cobbled together an external sound system for my computer from bits & pieces I had going spare...

iMac -> Arcam rPac (usb2.0 / 192KHz) -> Rotel RC-970 pre-amp -> No-Name mini digital amp -> B&W LM1 Speakers

(The amp is the weak link here - will likely replace in future)

Anyhoo, I have this set up with max volume on the iMac and max volume on the amp with the Rotel volume control governing overall volume.

Would this be the best configuration for volume controls in terms of non-destructivenessiness?
