I too pour straight into the tank. But I do on a weekly basis remove the tank to clean, and that's probably where the air gets introduced. I'm not going to worry about it. As I said, after implementing Dave's suggestion to slowly lift the lever, it has greatly diminished the sound of the cavitation. And with both Dave and CCS saying that the cavitation will not harm the pump/motor, I'm not going to worry about it.

Funny, all of this talk of LED got me to turn it on this morning. Now I do want to see how easy it is to remove...so that maybe I can swap out some new colors! Maybe a Darth Vader red light saber to go with the Obi-Wan blue that's on it. :D

From what I remember when I took the sides off it would be really easy to replace the lights. Red would match the PID, which I think would look nice. I'm not sure if Chris has a say in the PID color, but I a blue display would look so nice with the installed blue LEDs.

I never turn mine on... mostly because I never remember that I have them.

I just wanted to mention that my 2B has stopped making the noise as Dave said it would.  I guess the air in the lines got worked out and now it is very quiet.

it took a while for mine to stop making the noise too, after I unduced the problem in a big way to then find out how to correct it. I stopped the very bad noise quite quickly by my work, but then the little grr that happened occasionally, took a while to work out. One of the things to help keep it away. When you switch the machine on, draw some water through the group just before it starts warming up. This fills any void left by the contraction of water in the brew boiler when it cools.

Thanks for the advice Dave.  I will start doing that this evening.
