Whats that all about, do you notice a loss in sound quality when this happens, or something??

Not really. It's a working/not working type of thing.

If it's affecting your contacts then you will start to get sound drop-outs at lower volumes and then, all of a sudden, you will get output from your speakers when whatever you're listening to gets louder. If you don't clean the contacts then eventually you will get no output at all.

ummm interesting and Im glad I asked cos if I start getting drop outs I would blame it on the amp, but now I know otherwise. Thanks:thumbsup:
