With the main knob all the way down on the Studio 192, audio can still be heard through my headphones. Why is this?

Looking at the front of the unit, on the lower left of the Main Knob it states, -80db.

Any signal that is audible to your ears below -80db may still be heard.

The Main Knob delivers 80dB of attenuation and is not a full mute.

For a full mute lower the main output in your software or use mute on your DAW output.
