I was unsure of where to post this question, because it could have fallen in a few different categories. In any event, I have a new Saffire USB 6 audio interface. It sounds very good, but it is significantly quieter than other equipment. I have it hooked up to my Carver preamp, and from there into my Bryston 2B. The computer is the source for the Saffire. I make sure all settings in the chain are up to full, including monitor controls on the Saffire, however, when I toggle my main CD player with the Saffire, it is much quieter. Is this normal? Could my Saffire merely output lower line levels than my CD player? The quality seems fine, with a very good noise floor, and if I adjust my preamp, I can compensate, but it is a bit disconserting.
