DAC+ Audible Distortions if PCM ist set over 90%

Hello everyone,
i'am getting some unpleasant distortions at loud section of the music if the hardware volume
is set over a certain level. If "playback" and "playback boost" are set at 100% (they can only
set to 0% or 100% btw) the distortions are really unbearable since they can basically be heared
anywhere when listening to music or something else.

Is it supposed to be like that? If so, what PCM value would be recommendable?

os: Arch Arm
hw: Raspberry Pi 2
