MBOX 3 Mini volume knob static

Anybody else having issues with their MBOX 3 mini? Mine has static in the volume knob. I've returned it twice already for the same issue. I just got mine back from avid the other day and they were supposed to have fixed the issue. While it doesnt occur as much as it used to, I heard a slight static noise again yesterday which leads me to believe that it wasn't fully fixed or mbox's just suck when it comes to volume knob static. That's why I'm thinking about selling this thing to get a duet 2!

Mine's like that but I use it on a secondary computer, not in the studio and don't use the volume much so I just deal with it.

Wow. That means it's a common problem. Avid should be ashamed if themselves!!
