Makes me love my amp even more. :)

Setting pcm or vol to anything else than 100 while mplayer is running 
results in immediate noise. Never had that issue with ad1988: i just 
couldn't change vol/pcm. In Windows the volume setting for SPDIF is 
marked as not changeable.

If i can provide further info/help out somehow i'd be glad to do so!
