Thanks to the advice on this forum, I went and demoed this system yesterday - and bought it straight away. The performance is excellent, but I have got a couple of questions for existing owners. Firstly, the drive seems quite fussy about discs, especially with CDs. Everything plays, but the drive spinning noise is very high on some discs, and much quieter on others. I would blame the discs themselves, but they are fine on my Marantz CD player and Denon 2200 DVD player. Has anyone else noticed this? Secondly, I noticed a few threads concerning a noticable fan noise that cuts in at volume level 45 and above. Mine does not do this, although I can notice a slight hiss through the speakers in quiet periods of a DVD if I have the volume very loud.
