Hi Heiner,
I am not quite sure I follow your recommendation. Well, I understand your suggestion and I read other posts in this forum related to the HW volume controls (https://www.max2play.com/en/forums/topic/volume-settings/).
I have been playing with the command line options, and your suggested -o hw:1 -V Digital works the way that it disables the ability co control volume over the app (is kept constantly at 100%). But listen, the HiFiBerry Digi+ has no DAC nor AMP that could be controlled.

HiFiBerry:~ $ amixer -c1
Simple mixer control 'Tx Source',0
  Capabilities: enum
  Items: 'S/PDIF RX' 'AIF'
  Item0: 'AIF'
HiFiBerry:~ $ amixer -c1 scontrols
Simple mixer control 'Tx Source',0
HiFiBerry:~ $

My question was if there is a way how to use the app to control the volume (for instance iPeng), but have every volume changes forwarded to an external AMP device over HTTP request, or LIRC.
The outcome would be that whenever someone tries to change the volume in the app, the actual volume adjustments would happen on the external amplifier. Max2Play would need to forward any requests for volume changes to either http commands (which would need to be set somewhere for each AMP manufactures, for instance DENON http://your_receiver_address/MainZone/index.put.asp?cmd0=PutMasterVolumeSet/-45.0), or to LIRC output (again using config for the given AMP user has attached).
