Use your DAC, with volume on the Tidal slider at max.

Your amp controls the volume, not Tidal. Tidal has no volume control or equalizer.
Your computer should route all sound to the driver for the Ayre, and when you install the Ayre driver, this should normally happen automatically (at least it does with Chord drivers). This becomes the system default, so Tidl can simply use the system default. And your computer volume should always be at 100%. Use the amp volume control exclusively for best results.
