    Im experiencing a slight squelching noise in the rear speakers when the amp is set to "Prologic" when I am not watching a prologic broadcast (ie normal Sky broadcast of Eatenders) - the squelching goes when I turn the amp off prologic and on to one of the sound processors (say...tv surround or sports presets).

    Is this something wrong with the amp or is this to be expected?

    A newbie!

    Does sound quite normal to get these effects in the rear speakers.Iget it but you do have to be quite close to the speakers to hear it.

    The squelching sound that you are experiencing is sound compression that Sky+ and other terestrial channels do to their sound.If you set you're amp to direct sound (or similar, depending on you're amp) the squelching goes away.
    This information was given to me earlier in another thread by Juboy.
    I hope this is of some help.

    P.S It should only happen with broadcast channels and not DVD.
