    Isn’t having expensive speakers for at least two years normal?

      You could make a hole in the table that the macbook lays flush with the table surface

          BETTER OPTION: Try "Sound Control by Static Z Software". I've had the same issue with the grey volume of death, but Sound Control lets you use the one cable setup, AND uses the same volume interface that the Mac uses when changing the volume. The "free trial" is for the premium features on the utility, but if you just need volume keys working, it's totally free. Lightweight, easy install, etc. Highly recommend.

            Yo Jonathan, in the future try RME hardware. They may not have the marketing prowess of UA, Focusrite, or Apogee.... but they make the best drivers (super stable & incredibly low latency) & internal bussing (control audio volume with keyboard & even EQ your MAINS to tune them to your room) in the game. I own a Babyface Pro and it is outstanding. Awesome video as always 👍🏽

              Why don't you use Soundflower, It lets you use your volume keyboard keys with any kind of audio output. Its a lightweight and easy to use. Been using it from last two years never faced a problem controlling audio on Display port from keyboard volume keys.

                hey Jonathan I was already set to buy SoundSource but I remembered one mac equalizer called 'eqMac2' and it works like a champ with the Schiit Modi :)

                  Hey man true story, you should edit your audio on the lowest quality speakers you have. If it sounds good on those, it will sound good on the expensive crap. Plus most of your audience isn’t going to have the high end stuff. Unless you’re doing hollywood stuff, then maybe. I’m just saying you put all that effort on making it sound good and pay a huge amount of attention to detail on the audio and then realize your audience can’t even hear the work you did because they don’t have the good speakers 🔊... sad day.

                        Those speakers ruined it. Looks like it belong to a different era.

                          love your desk setup videos. tbh - for this setup 2x homepods would have made everything easier and would have reduced the cables at the rear. For the purpose of showing soundsource it made sense i guess. cheers.

                                    Great video I'm going to try Sound Source. Have you ever tried using Bluetooth to connect audio to your Mac?

                                      Lmao you need to buy an app get volume control on Mac that's some next level shit. Never had this problem on windows.

                                          That’s not true. The entire problem is something Jonathan invented. Does anyone need the insane convenience of a keyboard button for volume? Especially when there’s an expensive control with a nice dial right there? First world problems at their finest.

                                          What’s more, if the peripherals really don’t talk to the computer, this wouldn’t work on any OS without separate software.

                                        Good day to all! Sorry to take your time, but I want to ask you for help to fulfill my dream. I always dreamed of buying an iPhone, but in Russia my salary is enough only for food and housing. Forgive you help anyone than can. I’ll never forget. Once again I apologize to you.

                                                              I find this 'volume' issue to be a driver integration issue. You don't want to control 'volume' digitally, as that reduces dynamic range, rather control at the analog side because it highly depends on what's on the other end. Which I get that it seems like there are no reason that drivers could not present an interface to the OS to control via 'volume' control.

                                                                        You likely could have gone into the Utilties folder, then the Audio MIDI Setup app and with the new speakers connected, powered on, you could have setup the speakers to use your keyboard volume controls and done it for free. I have it set to control the audio out via my AudioEngine D1 DAC. Yes it has a volume knob, but you can control it now via the keyboard.

                                                                        Just a hint.
