What are you using as your output device? Or are you sending the audio to the internal sound card?

I don't understand -- you're using a DJM900NSX2, it has a gain knob. Turn it to adjust the signal level for that input...?

wow gain knob......obviously it has gain knob, but the question is why with the mac the hid advanced output of the cdjnexus2 is -6db and with the pc is 0db like the usb stick? is there something to set in the rekordbox over mac to adjust the volume

No - when you are using the audio outputs of the CDJ or DJM as the soundcard, that's the output level. Is there a problem with adjusting the gain?

is something that fails in rekordbox for mac, because same rekordbox performance on pc is 0db at the output same volume of the usb sticks. if you gains a lot you add distorsion is a physical thing....so why the rekorbox on mac is minus 6?

The amount of undesirable signal or artefacts possibly introduced by adjusting the gain by +6 on a digital source is minimal. I'm sorry it doesn't match the levels when used as an audio interface for the PC or direct from a USB / CD source, but this isn't exactly a "problem".

Have you tried adjusted the system volume (using the volume buttons on your keyboard) as well as the the volume slider in Rekordbox? The system volume is a separate beast from the app volume controls, this goes for both iTunes and Rekordbox.

In Performance Mode go to Settings - Controller - Mixer - Output level - Headroom - set it to None. Now speakers will be blowing full volume
