It says 8x gain. I don't see a gain switch anywhere. Can somebody clarify this to me?? Thanks

The gain is not adjustable, so there's no need for a gain switch. 8x means that if you put in, eg, 100mV, it puts out 800mV.

Maybe the dip switches are on the bottom. I hope it's not like the little dot. Hey Engineers! Is there a way for it to be intuitive? Could be in the pot. I really don't like speculation.

Pretty sure there's no gain switch. I've asked about this since I tend to listen at really low volumes on sensitive headphones. If you're like me, you'll need an additional volume control like the Schiit SYS between your DAC and this CTH.

That's what I'm thinking too. I listen to very low volume on my iems. I have a schiit magni uber and a hd6xx. On that though I usually listen to around 10 clock at high gain. I guess I'll have to wait for the reviews

Back when I paired my HD 650 with my Asgard 2, I think I was around 9 or 10 o'clock on low gain.

I see. I will probably get one of this when it comes out. I know the 650 won't have a problem. Just wanted to make sure if I get something that's not so power hungry
