i posted something similar a month or so back. basically i got a pioneer 370 a few months ago from rs. straight away i noticed that when playing disks it was a bit noisey. i have put up with it for a few weeks but its starting to annoy me a bit. its not just the odd dvd that it does it on its all of them. the player only cost £70 so i dont expect it to be totally silent but i expect it to be quiet when its playing a dvd. my other two players before this were all a bit noisey when loading up a disk or when say going through the menus but when i clicked on play i couldnt hear a thing. but this carries on the noise during playback. i rang rs up the other day and was told that this player was a little bit more noisey than most, but i want to know if there is anything up with mine or if that is how they are. the player is great i like it a lot and dont really want to change it but i am being distracted everytime i watch a film. anyone else with a 370? cheers.
