It seems that PA refuses to use the maximum hardware volume of my sound
card (Asus Xonar D1). As a result, the audio is very silent. I have the
volume sliders in pavucontrol set to 100%, but PA only uses 40% (-20db)
on the hardware mixer.
In order to get acceptable sound, I have to:
[raise volume to 0db manually]
Isn't PA supposed to use 0db on the hardware by itself?
