    Aye, got that message as well. I've been using it at high gain with my AB1266 all the time.

    Not that much in my opinion, but I'm coming from a tube amp as well (Malvalve Headamp Three). That one was producing much more heat. I was actually surprised on how "cooler" the Volot was in comparison.

    I guess they wanted to include something with more premium feeling. Once you get used to the buttons you need, it's not really a problem.

    Is this for the amp or the remote? My remote has been stuck for 2 days at clearance now ("Clearance in Progress"). Surprising given how quick it was for the amp.

    There apparently were problems with shipping, not sure it was Flux's fault. He has been on a 10 days vacation as well, he was back this last weekend. He already told me he wouldn't have started writing his review till the 26th at least.

    Well, he replied me on FB. In fact, he hasn't received it yet, he should this friday. Then burn-in, testing and writing, which won't start before 26th july. Still some long wait then.

    It was expected for yesterday, but nothing. Today there was a new dac review, thus I guess it won't happen. No idea on what's holding him back.

    Good to know. I don't use to turn on my amps without something attached. But I'm quite surprised there isn't some sort of protection for this (or a warning at least).

    I wouldn't overexagerate things. There are a lor of Flux amps around, none of them has that certification, but we haven't heard about burned apartments. There doesn't seem to have been many failure reports either. Not minimizing a serious issue, ofc, but things sometimes just break, even the...

    The Volot was supposedly developed with Susvara in mind, thus I'd expect great things. I own a Volot, but unfortunately not the Susvara.
