Elektron gear typically gets high marks for its build quality and I love the metal chassis and overall feel of the units. However, there are a couple of areas that makes me concerned when using it:
- The connections on the backside all feel a little wiggly/loose when connecting/disconnecting stuff. It’s not as rigid as I’d expect. Is this normal or should I reach out to their customer service? It’s the same on both the Digitone and Digitakt.
- When using them in the evening, it’s easy to see the mainboard/PCB completely exposed underneath the buttons. You can clearly see it when peeking through the small spaces around buttons. There’s no rubber coating or anything to protect dust and (worst case) liquids from dripping right into the PCB if you have a little late night accident.
What’s your experience with their durability? Particularly on #1, will it last for frequent plugging/unplugging of cables or should I be worried about it?
