My Gustard H20 suddenly producing static like cracklings noise only on the right side from 4pin xlr and all single ended out. It’s not headphone issue as I tried with DAP directly and headphone are working fine.

I sent video recording of the Gustard to local parallel importer and was told the component spoiltbased o Gustard advice. I cannot help but to think this is common issue as the immediately know the issue from video? Plus there is disclaimer that it may not solve the issue.

I was advised to get the Component from Gustard thru him and need to find on my own for repair Man to do replacement and soldering.

Anyone has similar issue or have suggestion?

thank you

This amp isn't cheap. Perhaps next time it would be wiser to spend your money on a company with a better quality control reputation.

That's my suggestion, hope u can get fixed

Sorry I couldn't give more helpful advice

You may not have been aware but Gustard is a Chinese company that makes knock offs of German Violectric and other brand amps using subpar components as you are now experiencing.

In the future if you need an amp recommendation PM me and I can provide a number of more reliable good sounding options to choose from.
