RE: With a digital source, why preamps at all?

LPs are always worth a listen - I'm a musician and I had thousands. But I just don't have room for them, I'm not about to fork out hundreds of pounds on styli, I'm not going to get up every 20m and change the side and on and on and on. I listen to music while I work on other things, and I want my mouse to do the walking.

The thing about digital volume controls is to design your system so that your listening volume is close to the maximum on your computer. So typically you attenuate very little. That's certainly how I've configured it. Just 2 amplification stages. Just enough.
