    Dear Forum,

    I’d like to set a maximum volume for the speakers. My hardware is raspberry pi3 with hifiberry Amp2 and I find that the volume can be much too loud. Using the squeezelite app, only a limited amplitude of the sound ‚button‘ is available. It would be very nice to set a maximum volume which would expand this control. Any hints?

    Hi duval,

    Unfortunately, setting the maximum volume as a limiter in ALSA is not so easy. You would have to use additional programs or ALSA plugins. Here, for example, a virtual sound card is created for this: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/116084/setting-maximum-volume
    However, this is very time-consuming and could lead to other problems, so I would advise you not to use it.
