This sets output to 100%, which seems the best for driving an amplifier:

`amixer set PCM -- 100%`

use smaller numbers to get quieter, and 0% to mute. Thanks to Joe (see comments) for finding a simpler solution than my original post.

Thanks for this. It’s the simplest answer I’ve found.

Glad it was helpful!

This is a great simple answer, just as Eddie said. Thank you! Do you know what number gives a mute effect?

try this:

`amixer set PCM -- -10239`

Actually you can tell the limits by looking at the output of that command:

The minimum is -10239 and the max is 400 (not 1000 as I originally wrote).

Thank you for the helpful reply! Also, I found out an easy way to do volume percentage:

amixer set PCM — 100%

This sets the volume to 100 percent. Hope this helps, and thank you!

In my last post it might look unclear; there are two dashes between PCM and the percentage.

Joe, that’s awesome. I didn’t know you could use the % sign like that. Thanks for the tip!

FINALLY Jesus Christ

Glad I could help ðŸ™‚

Is there a way to have this setting to become permanent?

Try `sudo alsactl store`? I’ll check on my Pi when I get home to confirm.

Perfect! Thank you very much indeed!!

thanks Mr ðŸ™‚

You’re Awesome!

simplest solution i found and this one ended my non-stop searching! thanks!
