Do you experience anything at all with your magni? Static noise in the right ear cup, or sound when you move the volume pot at all? Honestly I kind of like the Vali... If I can be guaranteed that it will work properly I would order one.
I'll just send him an email saying I've tried everything and sent the unit away three times and I still have the noise. I'll tell him I just want to be get rid of the ******* wretched noise, even if I have to buy new gear. I just want it gone
