My Picade is running fine, but for some reason, the peak volume level decreased slightly after I changed the firmware recently (I’m using picade_b2.3.hex). It’s not a dramatic decrease, but its noticeable.
I noted that there is a “vol_max” variable set at 24 in picade.h. Theoretically, shouldn’t this be able to go a bit higher given the capabilities of the amp? Not sure whether this was purposefully set lower than 100% because of the problems users were having with their monitors as a result of the amp drawing too much power when cranked to 100% (I don’t have that issue since I power my monitor via a hub)? I attempted to modify the variable, but it had no effect.
Question – is there a simple way to increase the maximum volume? Perhaps requires re-compiling?
