Sure they is / was feedback, when the volume slider moves. And its quite easy to see, 
when the volume slider is set to 1% for example, but the next file should begin playing with 100%.

So I totally agree with Felix here.

That is another situation. And I agree with you here,
but the volume controls should be only greyed out when the file is actually playing.
