Pioneer DV370 - should it be so noisy?

    Just got a DV370, and wonder if anyone with experience could help.

    It makes a horrendous noise when accessing different parts of the disc - eg when the menus load or chapters are changed. It's not just a barely audible whir, its a very loud, mechanical 'clk' sound.

    Is this par for the course on this model, or do I have a defective piece? Do the DV470 or DV575 make a similar noise?

    Cheers.

    PS Apart from the unattractive, slanting front (which Pioneer's photos don't show!) and the noise, its an excellent player...

    I have read from others who talk about the same problem with 470/575 models. I borrowed on for a day and it was extremely quiet.

    I didn't keep it though as I prefer Sony players.

    Ive got a 575 and it makes a slight whirr/almost whistleing sound, but this is only noticable on silent or very quiet parts of the film, and is intermittent. My neighbour has a 370 and it is even quieter than mine. I even changed mine for a new one and it was the same.

    oh yeh, its silent when playing the disc right through, but makes one hell of a racket (like no other player I've experienced) when manually flicking through chapters - and of course when doing this, there IS no soundtrack to mask the noise...
