    Hi folks,

    I am considering buying either the DV78 or DV79 DVD player.

    Just wanted to know whether or not these players are particularly noisy during operation? I've had some players which have been noisy and have been audible whilst watching a movie, something that irritates me a lot!

    So, what are these players like? Any "hums" or "buzzing" which are audible whilst a disc is playing?

    Cheers.

    Very quiet indeed from my DV29. That said, for all but the worst offenders if you can hear the DVD player you haven't got the volume turned up enough. :D

    Be assured Crustyloafer that I do have my volume "cranked up" but during quiet moments of a film, I hate it if I can hear the DVD player "humming"/"buzzing" along.

    no, not a whisper during silent moments in a film. I can do a dB measurement if you want ;)

    My DV78 Is very noisy with some discs, so much so even during the less quiet passages. At one point it was so noisy and vibrated to much I had to put a towel on top weighted down with a book which seemed to help slightly. though Arcam & sevenoaks have kindly agreed to swap it for a new one.

    Regards RR

    I have never heard my dv79 make a noise, and it sits pretty much next to my ear when watching films.
