I have to second this. Before, the ringing would go away in a short period of time, and I personally think people were making a mountain out of a mole hill. It really wasn't THAT bad, at least not after you'd had your headphone plugged in and the volume adjusted, and we're willing to wait a minute or so before you started listening.
Now they've made some adjustments that really make the ringing a non-issue, so much so that you actually have to try to make it ring by tapping on it. I believe these adjustments are just bending the tube leads and pressing the pads down to keep the tubes attached to the board, so even if you got your unit early on you can do these things at home. And if your not comfortable doing these things you can ship it to Schiit and they'll fix it for you (that's what I did
I guess I think Schiit has quickly taken care of the ringing issue, and it shouldn't affect your decision to purchase or not. If you do purchase one, I'm pretty sure you'll be happy with it Edited by mangler - 1/21/14 at 6:30pm
