When I'm recording in Sonar, output is directly to the Focusrite and system volume doesn't come into the equation at all.

Outside of Sonar, I always have system volume up to 100%, and I do all volume control with the Focusrite itself.

When I'm recording/mixing, at least, the only signal degradation is the D/A and A/D conversion - which all happens in the Focusrite, which has pretty decent converters.
