Problem: Level difference between Airplay and SpotifyConnect
#1
I have a Pi4 plugged into an RME ADI-2 DAC.  I have normalization off, and all of the starting volumes in moOde set to 100%.

When I Airplay from Spotify, the RME input meter peaks at around -.5dB as expected.

When I send the same songs to moode via SpotifyConnect, the DAC's input meter is pegged at "OVER" and I swear I hear a hint of clipping.

RME has special WAV files to verify bit-perfect, untouched playback. Moode passes that test when I play them via Airplay, so there seems to be something different about the SpotifyConnect side.

Ideas?

Airplay and Spotify Connect are two separate applications and I'm sure they use different volume algorithms.
