    Does anyone know whether the pioneer dv530 model has the same noisy drive problem as the 525 had?

    thanks for any replies, Jon

    Dunno about the 530 but my 625 also has a very noisy drive. Must be a Pioneer
    'feature'.

    My Pioneer 636 is also very noisy which is a shame as its a very good DVD.

    Same story with my Pioneer DV-737. It's unbelievably noisy, especially when playing dual layer discs (near the start of each layer and during menu screens).

    And this is on a player which boasts an 'acoustic damper tray'. I'd phuckin' hate to hear one without the acoustics dampened! [​IMG]

    So even the 737 is noisy?
    I have a 525 and it is quite noisy at times. Specially in the beginning at menu's and such.
    And I was hoping to set my goals up for a 737 because I thought that one must be less noisy, but I guess thats not the fact?

    I'd still recommend the 737 in terms of picture and sound quality, but if you're looking for a quiet machine then forget it. It's as noisy as hell!

    I should also point out that I moved into DVD from LaserDisc so I'm used to a certain level of background noise. Even in this context the 737 can be noisy to the point of distraction.

    Oh btw, the layer change is so slow you'll almost have enough time to leave the room and make a cup of coffee without missing any of the film. Another minor detail which seemed to escape HCCs attention when they reviewed it. Must've slipped their minds eh?

    I know it has great image quality and all, but the more I read the replys here the more Im beginning to think that this must be "the machine from hell" [​IMG] Guess I should start to reconsider my future plans for upgrades.

    I got the 737 a few weeks back but sent it back as I thought the sound wasn't as good as my LD player. Has any one else found this with the 737 or is it true for all DVD players? Would be nice if people with both players could do direct comparisons between the two and post the results.

    ------------------
    Is he the one?
