USB DAC taking exclusive control of volume & disabling Windows master vol, any way to hand control back to Windows?

Recommended Posts

Any advice regards the above would be great.


I'm thinking of buying a usb connected volume dial but it looks as if it will only control the Windows master volume.

My HRT dac takes ownership of volume duties rendering Windows volume inactive, I can control the volume from within programs themselves eg- Tidal/Youtube though.


I want to run the DAC straight into a pair of monoblock amps & use the usb connected volume controller to control everything. Is there a workaround to make this possible?


The monoblocks each have a level control which I planned to set well below max to avoid any unexpected sounds blowing speakers etc.


The USB vol control looks something like this-
