I received this amp yesterday it makes enjoyable clicking noises when turned on and when you rotate the volume knob. Will they eventually go away? I hope not.
This is so funny :) I have only been listening with the balanced output until a few minutes ago, and didn't hear any clicks, even though I tested how low the volume goes before it mutes. What you described sounded like a relay-stepped attenuator, a fancier type of volume control less prone to channel imbalances (the Schiit Ragnarok has that, for instance). But single ended the volume is low enough that I actually hear the clicks, though I could also just take off my headphones. Funny! I like the noise. I hope my colleagues do, too :-D
Or, as seen on Amazon and Shenzhen Audio: "The use of matrix relay volume,effective to ensure that 4-way volume unanimous".
Just counted, and it has 64 steps, like the Schiit Ragnarok.
I'm pleased to learn that enjoyable clicking=quality.
