    I've just picked up a second hand AV50 multichannel amp from ebay and it has this really annoying BUZZ coming from it when its powered up. in a quiet room its audible from about 10' away. Any one have any suggestions as to what might be causing this and a possible solution?

    thanks

    Sounds like a noisy transformer. Can be fixed relatively easily, speak to your dealer who may be able to arrange a chargeable repair through Arcam if they still have the parts.

    I would suggest calling your dealer prior to bringing it in, he might be more receptive to handling an out of warranty repair if you discuss it with him beforehand
