Out of the box the maximum output of the GameDAC is limited to meet certain countries’ regulatory requirements for hearing protection. But the GameDAC features a setting to defeat this limiter and make use of its full power:
- Press and hold the main knob on the GameDAC to enter the menu
- Select Audio
- Navigate to ‘Gain’
- Switch the Gain setting from Low (default) to High
The GameDAC output will then be 6 dB louder.
