Try to use value far away of digital limits of -0.00 dBFSD. We use -18 dBFSD due we work for EU market. As any analog device if you set your gain high from the nominal level you will hit the device more near the maximum value and get more harmonic distortion, then you should rise output gain to get back to the nominal level.

Last version of Nebula can do this automatically through the Gdrive parameter.
