  1. Hi All, Wondering if there's any Hiface usb/spdif converter owners out there that have experienced volume setting problems. I've recently gone to a Mac mini and after being underwhelmed by the usb signal out to my dac, I picked up a Hiface. Downloaded the software and have experienced a better sound (although software download was a bit weird - wouldn't let me pick the destination folder...) However, when using the Mac's sound settings to select the Hiface, it automatically sets the volume to Maximum and will not let me lower it. Interestingly, I still need to then crank the amp (dial getting towards two thirds of full vol) to get reasonable listening level - something I didn't experience when using usb. Having the amp cranked up that high means I occasionally blast the speakers when I switch to another source . Another issue - when using VLC to play video and sending a signal via the Hiface - the sound track is significantly delayed. Delayed enough to make it unwatchable. Anyone experienced similar problems? Any thoughts or tips greatly appreciated - I went for the Mac mini as one box, simple life solution so I'd like to avoid having to constantly change output devices and volume levels when I change source. cheers
