Bad quality sound on MoodeAudio 6.x

The EQ wasn't a contributor to the volume loudness issue in my tests, and reducing Max ALSA volume worked with both Software and Disabled volume.

Not sure why Max ALSA volume is not being reduced on your end.

Hm, right now I'm on Software setting, and the Max ALSA set to 80, while the slider set to max, and I can definitely hear the sandy distortion sound on some fragments of the track. As soon as I decrease the slider, the distortion goes away. And yes, I increase the volume on my amplifier to be able to maintain same volume level and to hear the distortion, but there is 0 distortion in this case.
So, what's the difference between the Max ALSA volume setting and the general volume slider? Are they controlling different volumes? Maybe one controls the DAC digital part, while the other operates the output volume?

I'm not expert in those DAC things, just an assumption, but clearly there's something wrong on my side and I'd like to figure out what exactly. What's your DAC? If it's the one I'm using, maybe HW revisions also make difference? Mine is 2.6.
