I got my Sprout today. Hooray!
But, as I was unpacking, I noticed a rattle inside the Sprout. I figured something had come loose inside?
I popped off the bottom panel and quickly found the source of the rattle - a loose screw used to secure one of the motherboards. Please see picture:
It’s pretty obvious where the screw needs to be so I screwed it into place. The screw threads were fine so I don’t think it came loose during shipping. I don’t think it was tightened down during the QC check?
Anyway, I’m glad I caught this. It potentially could have caused a short? I haven’t had a chance to power up the Sprout but I will test shortly and confirm that all is well.
Maybe PS Audio should slow down the QC just a little?
