Over-driving my dac/amp?
The volume levels are reduced at first use of the DAC by around -15dB to prevent people from blowing their equipment or ears. It is not a right or wrong position and you shouldn't return to it. Instead, you should set it to where you want them to be. In all the 300+ USB audio interfaces I have seen, there hasn't been a single one where you could drive it over 0dB, so it cannot cause distortion.

If the hardware volume screen shows two (or more) sliders, then the app will move the first L/R pair.

Not all DACs confirm to the standard regarding the volume control, but we'll try to add the dB values in future.
