Forty years ago only the most expensive audio equipment was hiss-free. Not so today. You should hear no hiss at all. If you do, it's either a design defect or a manufacturing defect. Either way it's not acceptable. Take it back!

Isaac et al., out of curiosity: if you were to put you finger on the eyelet [against the table], which direction does the natural curvature of the wire follow? Is it upwards, flat against the table to the right/left, or something else? FYI: I aim fo
