    Hello,
    I've asked on dedicated forums but getting no answers so as this forum has been very helpful in the past thought I'd ask here.
    I have my Raspberry pi linked to my new Little Dot mkii amp and FLAC files now sound astounding using Senheisser HD650 headphones but need the amp cranked right up to near full volume to get a decent listening level.
    Has anyone else got a similar setup with similar issue.
    Am I doing my valve amp any harm having it at this level
    Is there any way to umph up the volume output of my Rasp pi
    I'm using Openelec (Kodi) so do other operating systems such a Volumio offer higher output
    Can I get a preamp suitable that may help.
    Hope someone can help with this it would be very appreciated
    tj

    Hello,
    Had no replies so thought I'd answer my own thread as it may help others.

    1 hour ago struggling for days trawling the net for answers I wasn't getting, I found the issue.

    Openelec (Kodi) was the problem, I installed Volumio from Gordon's download page, flashed that to a spare 32gig micro card and hey presto, full meaty volume.

    Just tested with a Daft Punk track and listening with amp at 3 when with Openelec had to listen at 8, superb, infact I think I'm best reducing Volumio volume down a tad for better quality sound.
