Volume – Is this different to the original iDSD Nano?

Question: With iDSD nano BL, the description says “2 track potentiometer”. Do I get it right that in iDSD nano BL this is a classical in-signal-path variable resistor that regulates the volume and if so do I get it right that “2 track” means separate tracks for right and left channels to support the “S-balanced” topology?

With the original iDSD nano you called “software-controlled analogue volume control”, meaning that the actual potentiometer that you turn with the knob is not in the signal path, but instead it controls the IC that switches the signal between many different pairs of resistors?

Answer: That is correct. After extensive testing we feel the solution in the iDSD nano BL sounds better than in the original iDSD nano.
