I have been waiting for response from hypex for a week now.
Other fusionamps are exhibiting also various other problems. Company has released products without proper testing and a lot of quality problems.
I had this too, intermittent start-up timing.
I then figured out it has to do with the fact I have a 1x buffer after the volume. The whole gain architecture has to be taken into account. My main speaker is 97 dB.
- For the coupling to the Hypex I made a special 20 dB line out amplifier, and now the units starts up perfectly. Yes, I see it clips when loud but I never go that loud.
- . . and now it starts perfectly, no problem.
