Hi guys

I got one of these monitors after upgrading from my Samsung SE790 but am having issues with the volume.

If I set it to 1% on the monitor it is still too loud than it should be, even if I get youtube or VLC media to the bare minimum. It feels like its about 10-15% higher than it should be at 1%!

I can only adjust the monitor volume through the buttons and then the rest through youtube or vlc. There is no option to adjust this on my Mac Pro via Displayport or HDMI.

Does anyone have this monitor aswell to check?

I will try it with a Windows PC/Laptop and see if the issue happens there.
Tried Soundflower but was sketchy as hell lol although sort of worked.

Tried it with my sisters Windows laptop and can go fairly quiet so looks like it is a Mac OS issue, typical!
