It is possible that you have a lemon. Mainland Chinese electronics production is not as mature as, say, Japan's. I have had very good results with mine (although admittedly I have only had it about 2 weeks). Very smooth, non-fatiguing sound. Do you have a Bertrand unit or a grey-market? The Bertrand's seem to me to be pre-modded, what with their claims of NOS tubes, etc.
Yes, there have been some problem with the Xindak. So it is possible you have a lemon. Trouble reading CD's and such.
I know some of us did a group purchase of Chinese audio. We took a long hard look at the Xindak, but decided against it. The One of the importers stopped importing them because of these problems. Supposedly it is/was being addressed.
One thing I have read from the professional reviews, as incredible as it might seem. The unit will sound kinda flat until it is warmed up for 3-4 hours. So it may no be a lemon just needs much longer warm up time.
