Default Problems with New Fast Track C400

The Fast Track C400 came out and I immediately thought it would be perfect for my set up. Unfortunately after downloading/installing the latest drivers from Avid/M Audio's website and plugging the device in, the preamp/input pots are scratchy and at the top 5% of the gain range, the self-noise is amplified exponentially. It's a gradual rise of hiss up until the final 5% then there is an audible bump and a 12db (at least) increase in noise.

I am thinking that I just received a faulty unit, but I wanted to make sure that nothing is wrong on my end. My computer/OS is Mac OSX 10.7.1 Lion on a 2011 Mac Mini Server 2.0ghz i7 with 4gig of ram and 2 internal 500gig hard drives. I installed the latest drivers from Avid's website before plugging the device in and I followed installing instructions dilligently. The audible noise is evident without any input devices plugged in, and I can both hear the noise through headphones when only using the control software or when recording with Adobe Audition or Pro Tools SE.

Any ideas? Should I return/replace for another C400 or go for another device? Thanks for any advice!

What did you do? I'm waiting for mine to arrive and wondering if you replaced and still had the issue?
