From earlier threads you may have seen my problems with the JVC, white noise through speakers with all unctions. Swapped for the Toshiba but have fan noise. Should it be so dominant that I can hear when watching at low volumes? The system also has really muffled speech at times despite all best dsp tweaking I can't get round this. Meaning if you want to here some TV programs you have to have the system up quite loud and then get blasted when the sub kicks in for music or sound effects! Phoned Richer Sounds up to see what they could suggest, I was interested in giving the Sony DAVS 550 a go. The store suggested that this was a backward step from the Toshiba, does anyone agree? Does the Sony have fan noise problems? Am getting a bit fed up with trying these units! Does anyone else have suggestions?
