If I use parametric EQ, do I need to lower the input volume to avoid clipping? Like a Pre-amp?
(I used to need to do this on EqualizerAPO)
I am using the optical input on a HiFiberry DAC+ DSP , 32bits, and sample rate to match whatever track I am playing.
I use the DSP to do parametric EQ (around +9db of correction)
I then output on the optical out of the DAC+ DSP to my DAC
