Yes, was
Linux max2play2 4.9.40-v7+ #1022 SMP Sun Jul 30 11:16:10 BST 2017 armv7l GNU/Linux

now have
Linux max2play2 4.9.41-v7+ #1023 SMP Tue Aug 8 16:00:15 BST 2017 armv7l GNU/Linux

– The beta updated Allo Plugin menu now has a “Master” element to adjust the volume
Confirmed, looks ok .

– If you want to connect it to Squeezelite, you have to replace the -V Digital with -V Master in the commando line options of Squeezelite
Done.
Am now using this for squeeze lite
-C 10 -o hw:CARD=PianoDACPlus -V Master -a 80:4:: -R -u vLE:::28 -r 176400,192000 -D 80 -f /var/log/squeezeboxserver/squeezelite.log -d all=debug

And this for shairport
-t hardware -m hw:CARD=PianoDACPlus -c Master

alsamixer now shows the master
