the Dirac Live Calibration Tool has a slider "Output volume" in the last tab. Is there any risk setting it to maximum? I guess a boost in the equalisation would clip the output? Also how is it related to the output volume in the DDRC24 plugin?

In a typical setup, I don't think we've seen a time where you'd run this fader @ 100%... (maybe based on our gain structure).
WIth this said, you're correct. Best to keep some headroom here to say -10dB just in case.

I really would want some kind of clip detection implemented. When i set to -10db I get a bit too low output from my DAC (after a DDRC-22D).
