    USB 2.0 Speaker works, but only on full volume

    Hi,

    I bought a USB-2 speaker to fit under my monitor, and it works but only when the system is on full volume. If I reduce the volume using my keyboard's volume control even by one increment, then it goes silent. If I use the 'System Volume' slider in the Sound settings, then I can get more control and it seems like there is some 'range', but it seems like the 'zero' is at about 95% (visual guess cine the slider doesn't give a 'current' percentage, annoyingly).

    I am using the 'Analogue Output - USB2.0 Device' option on the 'Output Device'. If I choose the 'Digital Output (S/PDIF) - USB2.0 Device', then the volume slider makes no different and it is on 'full' all the time.

    Does anyone have any idea how to fix this so I can get a better control over the volume?

    Max.

    It seems no one has anything to say about this, so I opened a bug:

    You should have perhaps tried it in another computer / different OS before reporting a bug.

    Eh? Oh you mean I should have *mentioned* that I had tried the speaker on another device/os and it works fine...not sure how that makes any difference, but yeah, perhaps. I added a comment to that effect.

    Yes, because you didn't mention such troubleshooting in the first draft, I assumed you didn't do it.
