    Hi Big Cat

    You want that momentarily delay when grouping for performance... here's why and how to tweak; https://support.bluos.net/hc/en-us/articles/360021056034

    As for volume limitations, what you are hearing is normal. If you are running a phone pre-amp hooked up correctly you should be able to hear vinyl but at much quiter volumes due to how vinyl is recorded. For example, I have a vintage c.1993 turntable connected to an NAD PP 2i into the The Bluesound POWERNODE 2 in my home (I hear NAD Electronics makes great stuff). Listening to TIDAL, my volume slider is at about 1/3 volume. If I am listening to Vinyl the same recording will be at about 60%. If your Phone Preamp has gain settings, you can try tweaking those.

    Unfortunately that's just the way RIAA works. Wikipedia actually does a great job of explaining why in great detail; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RIAA_equalization
