    I called SWR about a vibration coming from the
    control panel on top. I noticed, esp. when hitting
    low notes, that I would get a rattling sound. If
    I applied pressue to the input jacks (head phone,
    etc.), then the vibration would stop.

    SWR explained that this is kind of a known glitch
    that the SWR WM10 at one time had. There is
    no wall inside the little cab separting the controls
    and interal chamber, so air can escape through
    the holes. Poor design? Maybe, but at least SWR
    is sending me some plugs for the unused input
    jacks which I"m told will fix the problem. I guess
    they had plugs for the WM10 problem when it
    was around.
