Audio Research DAC8 - output level and loudness



Sorry for the double post.

I have read with interest about DAC8 and noticed unusually high output levels (XLR -> 6.6vrms). Does it mean that DAC8 will automatically sound significantly louder then my current Marantz SA11 player which has the output level of 5.0vrms and is just about acceptable for low-level listening through my MA PL300? Are there other player output parameters that affect loudness of the system given no changes in other components?

One DAC8 is smiling at me :) but no home demo is possible where I live.
