    The problem seems to be gone for good. Maybe the relay just needed to be broken in or something.
     
  2. The Atom was better than my Polaris. I would get the Atom. It's exceptionally clean/clear.

    Thanks. That must have been an older post of mine. I ended up getting the Spark.

    This guy also commented on a post I made on my Twitter account about the Atom when the Atom was still just a prototype. He seems to have a hard time with reading dates but still feels the need to evangelize about the Atom anywhere he sees it mentioned.

    Honestly this issue was noted in many reviews and some YouTube reviews I watched also. A few reviewers had multiple units that had this issue.

    I’d like to try the atom, but this issue seems to still pop up.

    I reckon the difference between the Liquid Spark and the Atom is such that if you look at the measurements, Atom wins hands down. But can you actually audibly hear a difference? I'd say 99% of cases you can't know which is better if you A/B test them blindly. But theoretically Atom should perform better.

    If you consider that they both perform well, then you should take a look at the price... and it's the same.
    Next, the looks and build. Well, many seem to prefer the metal of the Spark but I kind of don't like the non-rectangular shape of it.

    What might tip the scales however is the customer service and communication, which JDS Labs has nailed down. I just had a discussion with their representative and I was left with all my concerns answered, educated and got to say quite impressed! Oh and somehow I'm craving for that Element and it's big knob now even though I literally just got the Atom two days ago :D

    You shoulda got the Spark - nice big knob lol :wink:

    Edit: I now see that the Atom has a nice knob, so I had to find images of the element to understand you. Wow, now that's a knob!

  13. Tried that and it kept coming off. I didn't have the urge to use glue.
     
  14. They really should offer a premium metal version for more with better build quality.

    There is an implemented screw in the knob to fix it.
