    i got a panny DB35 from costco a few days ago - put a cd in it just to see what it was like, and when it spins it up, the whole machine wobbles, if you touch it you can feel it vibrating slightly. if you turn the amp down, you can also hear the mechanical noise of the BD player.

    is this normal? i've heard that the higher end models are made a little more robust, is it to avoid this vibration, and is there anything i can do to help?

    I have not noticed it and I expect that I would. There is another device on top of mine which may damp it but when I first tested it there was not.

    I would return it. Even if it manages to work with a fault like this, I would not trust it to continue doing so.

    Unless your discs are warped, it should not do this.
