I'm not familiar with your model but the A5 CD player which is also tubed doesn't do this. Having said that, I also have a Cayin tubed player and it does exactly this - on power up it takes 30 seconds before it unmutes and if you've already hit "play" there will be no sound for thirty seconds. I have got into the habit of powering up and waiting till the thirty seconds is up before hitting "play". So in summary, I think this is a deliberate 'soft start' approach by MF and that it is normal for this player.
