I do indeed use it as my main volume (and headphone volume) control. I never touch the levels on my amps. The sub amp doesn't even have a level control, just a power switch. It's a MOSFET amp from a Village Roadshow Cinema, as are my subs, and I run it in bridge mode for around 2KW total maximum RMS power to four EV DL15W 15" drivers.
I have speaker de-thump protection on all ten amplifier channels so don't need to be concerned about thumps at on/off time.

As for levels, I've never had an issue with my monitors starting at the level I left them at the previous day. I have snapshots and workspaces set up in Totalmix for quick recall of complete configurations for either monitoring or recording. Those snapshots all have the monitor level at a nominal level that matches the K System calibration I'm using.
