Windows 7: Danger in running Windows' volume all the way up to 100?

Danger in running Windows' volume all the way up to 100?

Title pretty much says it all.

Is there any danger in running Windows' volume @ 100 24/7?

The thing is, my headphone amp just died on me, and while I get another one, I was wondering whether cranking Windows volume up to 100 was safe on both the cans (Sennheiser HD 515) and sound card (ASUS Xonar DS).

I have a good pair of Sennheiser headphones myself, they can generally take the abuse.

You are going to get some sound distortion when you crank things all the way up though, and it'll be all the more noticeable on those high end headphones.

I would go say 90% on both system volume and mp volume but I don't think I would push it anymore than that.
You're just kicking up distortion at that point anyhow.
