I have a question about the Digital Volume Control on the squeezebox. I
don't really understand what this paragraph is saying on the web interface:

"You can choose to have the digital audio output on your player be fixed at
maximum level or be controlled by the volume buttons. If you choose to have
a fixed digital audio volume level, the analog outputs will have the highest
quality possible. With either setting, the analog output levels are adjusted
by the volume buttons."

How does setting the digital out to a fixed level improve the *analog* outs?
And why would someone care if they are using the digital output?
