    It's doesnt seem to fouling anything at all. The store has said they will order me another one.

    It's not scratchy or metallic sound , just a very quiet wooshing noise?

    Spoke to Technics support, appatentky it shouldn't do that. They said ask for a new one.

    Interetingly, the pitch fader lnob was loose in the bag so somehow came off in transit.
    Hmm maybe it took an awkward drop on the way.

    The path to audio nirvana is never easy but you've been more than a little unfortunate. It's tough to take but you'll get there in the end and all this hassle will be a distant memory.

    When i opened it, the pitch fader knob was missing, upon further investigation it wad underneath the deck in the bag.

    Just to mention, it was with beyond doubt brand new as everything was perfect, even with only one piece of packing tape on both sides of the box.

    I'm sure that brushing noise would get picked up by the cartridge.

    I once had an issue with my LINN in that the belt was slighlty rubbing against the belt guide and you could actaully hear it through the speakers.

    Luckily Steve at Technics told me to get a new one!!

    Who did you buy the amp from, Andrew? Was it a dealer, Yamaha directly or what?

    I can't see that there is any excuse for sending out a supposedly brand-new product in that state. And there is no way the top plate should be reaching 47 C

    Heatsinks are 68 degrees celsius

    Even the front panel is about 42 degrees!



    It still sounds fantastic though so it's still very encouraging.

    I'm awaiting the new one, Yamaha have no stock so it's coming directly from Malayasia so about 2 weeks away but it will be brand spanking new!

    New tt here on wednesday, hopefully brushing noise not included! it must have taken quite a knock to pop of the pitch fader knob as it is stiff to push back on even!

    The amp is beautiful though

    It was a proper dealer and they are actually a Naim Statement dealer but would rather not say whilst the situation is ongoing.

    New tt here on wednesday, hipefully brushing noise not included! it must have taken quite a knock to pop of the pitch fader knob as it is stiff to push back on even!
    So someone at the dealers has re-boxed it and shipped it out to you as new, presumably hoping that you would not notice, or not care. Now you have to wait 2 weeks for a replacement. I'd want 500 off as a minimum or I would be naiming and shaiming (ho-ho). In fact I'd start at demanding a grand off and then bargain down.

    At least the Technics is 100%. Looks fabulous too.
