thanks for the reply. I didn't mean to imply that I expected it
to sound like an analog unit. I was just looking to approach that
smoothness and lushness with a bit more control. Unfortunately, I didn't get the opportunity
to further tweak the unit, because the intensity knob crapped out on me
after about an hour of use. At first it worked fine, then I noticed
the display alternating back and forth between the bar display and the
intensity numerical display looking like it was trying to "catch up" to
the position of the knob. I checked the "catchup" setting, but it was
disabled. Finally, the intensity control failed altogether, with
system and memory re-initializations having no curative effect.
It seemed like a software issue, particularly the way the display
looked like it was trying to catch up. Has this issue occurred
before? I'm sending it back to the retailer for a replacement, but I
thought you should be aware of the issue.
