I have two 2480 back home but recently got a 2400 near where my fiancée is studying. I thought the small form factor might be easier for checking in if I intend to bring this back home on a plane.

Upon powering it up and loading my 2480 project files on the 2400, it seems to me the phones out had more clarity than what I remembered on the 2480. Since the 2400 came later than the 2480, I'm wondering if I'm hearing this correctly.

Anyone who has two units can AB this?

Does the 2480 in question have "The Preamp Fix"? It could be that issue causing the noise....

I've compared (2) 2480s...1 with the fix and 1 without, the one without had a very bad (although not unusable) high pitched noise coming from the headphone out...I think the pre-amp board that required "the fix" also carried the outputs including headphones.

Hope this helps.

You could try buying a (cheap) used headphone amp (or headphone distribution unit) and run your master outs from the VS into it, then plug your headphones into the headphone amp unit. For very cheap you'd get to bypass the VS headphone jack.

I am comparing a later version 2480CD already fixed and the 2400CD. Maybe I'll put them side by side to AB just for the fun of it.
