Adjust your startup chime volume
Authored by: Spaniard on May 25, '12 09:52:38AM

Being reader for a long time, I had to register just to make things clearer about this! (two things to understand):
- Starting chime ALWAYS sounds from the speaker/s of your mac,
- All Apple machines remember independient volume settings; just adjust each (your mac\ios knows the last volume level you chose without a line out connected, so unplug the wire -ex. speakers/earphones- and JUST set volume down, even till mute, if you want. Plug on the sound line out, and JUST choose the volume level. On next startup, chime will sound even muted -as playing trough int. speakers, and every else will sound as plugged)
In all, is a very consistent behavior, and forget going to Preferences; it's not needed.
(I once spent some time searching for an app to mute startup... and it was all much easier!)
