Volume control problem w V-dac

Recommended Posts



I recently replaced my old Stereolink 1200 USB Dac w a MF V-Dac. (Absolutely worth it!). The V-dac is superior in every way except for one little annoyance. With the old Stereolink, I could use the volume control on the keyboard -doesn't work with the V-Dac. Of course I can use the application (Itunes 9.0.1, WMP or VLC) to control the volume, but the keyboard is just more convenient in daily use.


I dual boot between Mac Os x 10.5.8 and Windows 7 Ultimate - same problem. (So not OS specific).


I also tried every setting in Control panel /System Settings. Keyboard driver installed (Microsoft). Played with driver settings in Device Damager to no avail.


Any ideas?

The volume control on the keyboard controls the system volume. If you are using the toslink connection, then the system volume is automatically maxed and fixed. I forget if usb is the same, but you can check in OSX if you press the volume up/down buttons and the little level box comes up indicating that you can't change it. I don't know of a work around unfortunately.
