Sound difference between High\Low Gain Setting when volume matched?
In a Dac+Amp that has more that one gain setting (that is switchable) - will it simply produce the exact same sound but with a different amount of amplification, or could there be actual differences in sound when volume is exactly matched?
The specific device in Topping DX3 Pro+ I got for my nephew.
I’d suggest trying the lower output first to see if it’s sufficient to drive the headphones. I slightly prefer the lower output setting on my Singxer SA-1 with my Hifiman Arya Stealth ‘phones. Using a higher gain setting with sensitive headphones can result in unwanted noise or hiss.
