My V280 has developed a very loud crackling sound, I requested customer service but I only get automated emails, is this unit having any warranty? I'm getting worried because it's an expensive Amp.

Did you report the issue to drop support yet? They came back to me saying this product doesn’t have a manufacturer warranty, if any issue within 30 days should be reported to drop support. I should’ve asked before buying this when I couldn’t find the warranty mention anywhere....anyways I hope the unit that I’ll will be fine and hope you get yours sorted out

They should specify warranty to customers clearly before buying as per law but they don't, they just said its out of return period and there is nothing to do but a company as violectric is not letting their customers down, I'll let you know how it goes but I know for sure I'm not buying here again. Good luck with your unit.

Received my V280 today. The chassis color is a powder coated dark gray, and the engraving on the faceplate is different from the picture above. Not a big deal. Anyway, I only have about 30 minutes of listening with one specific set of headphones so far, the Beyerdynamic DT990 (600 ohm). They're power hungry and IMO sound awful with everything, except for classical. If an amplifier can drive these, it can drive anything. With no pre-gain set, this amp was driving the DT990s with ease and had power to spare. Anything past the 3 o'clock mark was too much. In conclusion, two thumbs up.

Any chance of another Drop for the V200? Much as I'd love a V280, balanced would be wasted on me and the 32cm depth of the unit does make it a bit cumbersome.

Update:’s shipping already.🤘🏽 I ordered this; been watching it over the years. I have a LTA MZ3 & Headamp GSX I need another HP amp like I need a hole in my head. rationale is rooted in this being a balanced SS amp that can be used in my desktop space. The price drop offered here lured me in...think this is the last black box I’ll need...I promise.🤣

Interested to hear comparison vs GSX mini :)

I have the LTA MZ3, GSX mini, and LehmannAudio SE Linear. I love them all for their qualities and differences. Just ordered the V280. Going for four holes in the head. I did ask the LTA folks whether a balanced/XLR/pentaconn MZ3 was looming. “Looking into it”. I really prefer balanced component and headphone connections: deeper silence, more panoramic soundstage, greater dynamic range.

It’s gonna take the V281 to get me to drop on another Violectric. At which point I’m selling the 789THX...unless, when I get this V850 going it starts to shine.
Count me also interested in the V281... not that I need another solid state amp.

We are now a week after the manufacturer confirmed they have shipped to DROP with no word from drop on when we should expect this. I’m disappointed in the lack of communication but not surprised give the track record. the real issue is that there are now plans for a future drop of this same amp. If that is run anywhere near how this drop has been treated. I think this (through no fault of their own) makes the manufacturer look bad and will hurt their planned drop. Depending on how this is handled I can’t see more manufacturers of high end products like this wanting to work with drop. edit: all is right in the world. Package has shipped

Thanks for directing us to the latest upadate! Sounds like we might get these amps over the next couple of weeks. All of my headphones are XLR terminated so the wait for the V280 has been painful.

Hey @DROP & @ARTHURPOWER, could you inform us why there is a delay in shipping these units. Is the issue with the U.S. Distributor or is it with Lake People in Germany, if so what specifically is the hold up? Are these units even built or do they still need to be built? I'm sure everyone is interested in knowing what's up. We have all paid a good chunk of change (in advance) for these amps yet we have NO IDEA when or if DROP intends to fulfill these orders. Why the secrecy? I think it's time that DROP provides some answers. Thank you.

Agreed. You can't just say shipping has been delayed and not give a reason why.
