Topic: Competent adjustment of loudness on a sound card
Greetings, the people.
Actually this question for certain rose in many branches on sound cards and .
I suggest to generalize in this subject experience saved up in long and fruitful discussions as this subject is rather actual among beginners, and not only. Of what I on own example was convinced. Understood that apparently long time installed loudness not correctly. Probably.
In general - let's understand.
All began that I studied for the first time a label of characteristics from to chip CS4398 more attentively.
Also saw there a curious inscription:

The vendor specifies in dependence of parameter THD+N on a level . And this dependence rather essential.
Earlier at forums said that it is impossible to expose in 0db. I and itself always in mixer Windows put value Master (which directly sets cards, on how many I understand) in position of 50 % and already on the amplifier installed comfortable level.
Under characteristics of chips, it turns out that the maximum productivity is reached only at level 0db, that is at all without that as I understand now quite logically.
That is at adjustment source audio level reasonably to put on 0db and to regulate or in applications (foobar, the browser etc.) or on the amplifier.
Though. On the other hand.
We reduce loudness on 20 db and THD+N worsens only on 10 db (107-97) if to take the same CS4398.
Theoretically, at loudness lowering subjective resolution of a source, increases. That is - it is perfect on the contrary.
So where truth?
Whether correctly I argue?
What thoughts about it are at you?
