Airtunes lets you adjust the volume
Authored by: lukeandrews on Jan 13, '09 10:32:39AM

Oddly, you *can* adjust the volume of music played over an Airport Express even when it's using an optical cable. The volume slider in iTunes still functions normally. I assume some sort of dynamic digital de-amplification takes care of this, although I can't say I really notice a drop in sound quality when I turn it down.

However, lowering the volume from max does prevent multi-channel audio from playing correctly. I tried a DTS-encoded WAV file and it plays correctly on full volume but turns to static at anything less than 100%.
