Airplay plays at lower volume than local files


I have set up the latest version of Volumio to use with Tidal via Airplay on an iPad. Streaming works fine.

Problem is the volume is significantly lower over Airplay than it is when Volumio plays (for example) FLAC files off USB attached storage. I can max the volume on the iPad and increase it on the Mojo to get Airplay to a listenable level, but if I were to then play any other source on Volumio the volume will be far too high.

I searched the help forums and found these posts discussing a similar issue but have not been able to solve the issue.

Any thoughts on how to sort this appreciated.


Volumio Information

Volumio Version: 2.853
Hardware: Raspberry Pi 3b
DAC: Hifiberry Digi I2S hat with optical out to Chord Mojo

Switching to a different DAC seems to have solved the issue. Now using a dragonfly red over USB instead of the mojo via optical I2S hat.
