My turn to ask a stupid question - why does one need a volume knob protector?
I don't see how the knob would break, even if you drop the unit and it lands on the knob. If you've seen how the knob is screwed in on the inside of the unit to a coupler and then to the rotary encoder (which sends the signal to the dac), it's pretty solid. I know it has some wiggle and play in it, but that is so it can move about freely. If it didn't have that play in it, it would be more prone to snap off. But I can't see how it would in the first place - It's solid aluminum.
Or is this just about protecting from scratches?
yeap you said it, protecting from scratches is the main reason for me to purchase it.. i cant bear to see scratches on my Goldie...
