2 meter long RCA cables shouldn't be a concern except if you live in an electromagnetic hell with interference coming from all sides. What's more worrying are the pops/crackles when you use the Vio's volume control; it's obviously not supposed to do that and a problem with the pot could potentially explain your volume issues. I'd advise to first connect a CD player and see what happens (leave the pregain on +6dB). If the problem persists, I'd send a mail to Violectric, I alway got an extremely quick reply when I did so. Is this a new unit you purchased? Perhaps something got shaken loose during transport, I dimly recall reading somewhere about a similar issue.
