Apple tv to TGP- IV

I have been using Apple tv for easy access all of the music on my computer.

It runs direct to the preamp, but has considerably less volume than other source components.

Do I need to run it through a DAC?

Any suggestions?

Re: Apple tv to TGP- IV

How are you running it to the TG-IV? If possible, try via TOSLINK & See how it sounds.

Re: Apple tv to TGP- IV

You might want to check the settings on the TG-IV, each input has adjustable gain controls, kind of a long shot but just a thought.

Picked up the toslink today.

Cranked it for the first time really since the toslink.
