Problems with HRT Headstreamer

Postby Murvel » Tue Dec 04, 2012 12:54 pm

Hi there.
I'm a new linux user and I've gotten through all problems I've encountered so far due to googling my ass off. There is however one issue that I still haven't found any answer to.
I have a HRT Headstreamer USB headphone amp/DAC and the volume is really low. There seems to be loads of ways to deal with low volume BUT my problem is that it's low all the way up to 100% volume. Then it gets extremely loud. So one last click to increase the volume on the keyboard turns it up from like 20% to 100%. It's like the increments in wich the volume is increased is very low and then all of the sudden the Headstreamer get a signal to send out full blast once it reaches 100% on the mixer.

Any ideas?

Perhaps using additional software to control the volume?
I am fairly new to Linux myself, but I can imagine that trying a different sound card driver may halp as well.
Hope this helps!
