ehoove & others having issues, Sorry to hear your problems with the unit. I was really excited to read glowing reviews and now sad to hear about reliability problems. Not to mention, it also seems many others on other audio sites are having the same reliability issues as well. I think I will stick with my Phonomena for now. Glad I didn't sell it to fund a purchase for the iFi unit. A big thank for reporting back and sharing your experience! Wishing you much luck in getting the issues resolved!
