I have had the HK DVD 30 for just under a month now - the video (component ps into Panny6) is awesome and the audio is equally excellent. However....... the box itself is very noisy, audible at 10ft, both transformer hum and the disc reading transport mechanism. It is particularly noticable when playing mp3 tracks. Instead of moving smoothly from track to track the transport mechansim starts searching rather noisyly for the next track. Not sure I can live with it... Has anyone with a HK DVD 30 experienced this as well? Any advice/suggestions welcomed.
