iTunes Volume Control

Good day all. I've got my library (at least a significant part of it) ripped AIFF and am now using a mac mini with external hard drive as a music server, connect via the mini-jack (optical) to the toslink digital input in my CDP (Levinson 390S). My settings on the computer show this as an output that is not adjustable, so I assumed as much. I was surprised to see the volume control work on itunes into my system!

 

After reading some threads, I still don't get it (slow). How do I get the truest setup? I thought I'd simply be sending a digital signal from my computer to my CDP(DAC section) and then use my pre for volume. How can I bypass this volume control?

 

Thanks and sorry if this is obvious.

I just set the iTunes volume and my Macs system volume to the max and control everything from either my DAC or tube amp, depending on which one I'm using.

Intel iMac + Beresford TC-7510 + Little Dot MK III + beyerdynamics DT 231 = Computer audiophile quality on the cheap! --- Samsung Q1 + M-Audio Transit + Sennheiser PX 100 = Computer audiophile quality on the go!

The "system" volume is fixed, iTunes volume is not. The iTunes volume is a 24bit software volume control and should be set on full/highest level. Make sure you read up on the problem of setting the bit/sampling rate in MidiSetup before opening iTunes to avoid resampling.
