Thanks for the input guys.
I had hoped Drop would answer this, I was not clear in my original post.
I can't quite figure out why Drop is so cavalier about this
IMHO the. Problem is not the EMI (electro magnetic interference) but the fact in happened in the first place. ,$400 is paying for a product that is designed, made, and outgoing tested well. Eliminating noise is 1 of the biggest challenges in analog design, especially for a high performance audio product.
This is not the software world where a major revision is followed many subsequent drops as bugs surface with customers. Even then the vendor provides a small explanation.
This is ANALOG, I feel like a broken record saying this. Of course there is EMI, you design against this, that's analog design. It's like a tire company saying, there are potholes on the road which ausea the tires to right rough, so send the tires back, we will re work them. And no more assurances or explanations.
Something broke down in the design, build, sell process to let these products out.
What makes me nervous is that there is no official statement.
Alright, I always try to point out that Drop adds more value than other sales channels when folks complain that they have found pricing from another vendor, like Amazon, that Drop is not just a price play. They aren't adding much value here though
