I'm just plugging headphones or earphones directly into the headphone socket at the back. The volume monitor isn't showing anything wrong - peaks getting nowhere near the top of the bar.
another thought - in the master screen, have you got the compressor engaged?

Has anybody in the UK received their Iridium yet? I bought one of the first batch @ Andertons (paid the day it was announced, expected delivery June 28th), and they've just told me today that I won't receive it until late July because the UK shipment has been delayed. Just wondering whether this is true or whether I've been relegated to the second batch...

I booked mine with Music Matter on that Friday at about 2pm Iridium was announced. I got it two days ago. So some came into the country.

Personally I keep a list of shops that fail to live up to their promises and I do not give them a second chance.

Alright, thanks for letting me know. They emailed me with a temporary delay about a week ago (saying the entire shipment had been delayed and they expected stock on the 3rd July instead), but changed that just now to end of July, so I have a feeling I've just been bumped into the second batch - maybe somebody more important came along and asked for one .

GAK claim they have them in stock right now so let's see where that goes :D

It seems that was it, thanks.
It was set to something like 70%, but I don't remember changing it. Is that its default value when it ships.

I'm not sure what the retail units ship with - I'd be genuinely surprised if it was anything other than 0 though as it's a persistent setting and it really affects the sound quality.
