Center channel distortion on Denon 4306

Hi All

I've been hearing a bit of speech distortion on the center channel on certain discs and in the exact same disc position each time.
I'm using: B&W 603 + LCR 600 with a Pioneer DV-575 player.

I've tried everything and come only come to the conclusion that either the sound mix is bad (but these are good discs like Jurassic Park), or the DAC is screwing up the decoding. Not affected by volume level or level of input signal.

Does NOT happen with any combination of music from the CD player/input. Only when I am playing a DVD, so I can say it is not the speakers.

Has anyone seen this? Could the dvd player be screwing up reading the disk? It should just keep faithfully providing the amp with ones and zeros right?
