Lets turn from theory and opinion for a moment to a technical issue I am having!
Anyone else get channel cut out with a mere gentle "wiggle" of the 02's input connector? Lately I am needing to give it a little wiggle to correct static / channel cut out issues. I think it also sometimes happens at the headphone out. Is that symptomatic of possible soldering issue inside, or maybe just a "feature" of the low-cost connectors?
