    I’m using shairport functionality and it works very well but I was wondering is there’s a way to fix the volume to 100% at startup?
    I can do this with spotify connect by using the command:
    –initial-volume 100

    is there a similar option I can add to command line (edit advanced options) for shairport?

    Hi Steve,

    Unfortunately there is no function for this that you can use in Shairport’s command line options. Shairport is designed for direct streaming from the iPhone and receives its volume. A corresponding function would have to overwrite the volume setting of the iPhone.

    Hi there. I’m keen to achieve this also. Would it be possible to edit the shairport-sync.conf file?

    Shairport-sync info manual

    General settings


    Set this choice to „yes“ if you want the volume to be at 100% no matter what the source’s volume control is set to. This might be useful if you want to set the volume on the output device, independently of the setting at the source. The default is „no“.

    My knowledge of these matters is utter novice level so forgive me if I’m being silly.

    Kind regards and thanks for max2play
