CJ should come up with a solution and fix all of these at no charge. A lot of coin for a flawed design.

Certainly not a flawed design. One of the best sounding preamps ever made and still is.
The trouble is current 6922 production is shite unfortunately.

I have had my Telefunken tubes for over two years and no further problems and it sounds like a dream.
