Volume 2 is an active DAW monitoring controller and a puristic high-end preamplifier.
The monitoring volume is controlled analogously with an Alps-RK 27 potentiometer.
If the volume is controlled digitally, for example in the DA-converter, the bit resolution decreases with decreasing volume with one bit per -6dB. Usually we listen with about -30 dB at full volume, which decreases the bit resolution by 5 dB.
It is claimed that passive circuits are less signal influencing and more puristic and therefore better. Well, that is not so.
A passive control element such as a potentiometer in the signal path, which is not electronically buffered, influences the frequency response and phase position. Both change continuously as you change the volume.
This is exactly what does not happen with an active control.
The Mute switch has two rights of existence. On the one hand, it allows the speakers to be muted without having to touch the volume control and thus leaving the set volume.
Secondly, the Mute switch is a panic switch. Whenever the computer hangs or crashes, there is a risk that a full level signal will reach the speakers. This can be extremely loud and may damage the speakers.
The mute switch can be used to quickly turn off the signal and protect the speakers and your hearing.
