So here I am with another question: almost by chance I noticed that if I play with sv1 volume set to 0, I still can hear, through headphones or amp plugged either in jacks or xlrs outputs, an almost inaudible sound of the notes I'm playing. By "almost inaudible" I mean that it's difficult to hear the note in the headphones unless there's complete silence in the room, or rather that I have to put my ear against the amp or pick the amp volume up to almost max in order to hear it.
The notes seem to be a little bit louder if I plug the xlrs, almost inaudible through headphones. I kind of remember something similar used to happen with my beloved P-120 (R.I.P.) when I was a kid, but I'm not sure.
It's definitely not disturbing at all, since it never occurs to me to play at volume 0... But is it normal?

It's not likely to be a fault with the SV-1, and will be the result either of the sliding contact on the resistance track in the volume control not reaching 0 ohms on the track, or through crosstalk between internal cabling and/or PCB tracks.

If the sound is only audible in a completely quiet room, then it must be at an extremely low level, since the dynamic range of human hearing perception is very large.
