I'm playing mine at the CMA Fest tomorrow. I'll run it by some Nashville friends and get their opinion. I know the Timefactor wasn't well-received by them due to this issue, but I do believe you that the H9 bench tests better than the TF. It just seems like, at the very least, MINE doesn't (and the others who've reported the same problem). I'd just love to know if I need to mail it back, because that's kind of a PITA given the ole schedule. May have to rush ship it; I'd just love to avoid the process altogether.
