    To all CP72 owners, how loud is your player? Specifically I'm wondering how far away from the unit do you have to be before you can't hear the motor during playback. Has anyone tested this with the volume down all the way just to see how loud?

    Thanks,
    BrianGC

    I consider mine to be very quiet. My older sony was louder but strangely enough it varried between the disc being played.

    I have to get within about a foot of my CP-72 to actually hear it running.

    Mines quiet enough that I've never given it a thought. However, it's on right now and after turning the volume off, I don't hear anything unless I get right up on the player.

    I find mine to be rather loud and clunky when it's changing discs and starting up. When the discs are playing, the transport is audible to me from 12 feet with the receiver muted. I've never noticed the player when a movie has been playing though. It's no louder than other players in its price range though.

    The less expensive players with their less robust construction (thinner sheeting) have more audible drive motors. The more robust players probably have similarly "noisy" motors but the sound is dampened by the beefier construction.

    My bedroom unit, a lower-end Toshiba, can be noticeably noisy, though not to the point of interfering with the programming.

    I wouldn't be too concerned about it. (If, however, you start hearing grinding noises or if the chassis begins to vibrate visibibly then there's trouble.)

    Agreed: my CP72 is dead silent as far as I can tell unless it is changing disks or skipping scenes/starting playback (pretty noisy then). I'm anywhere between 3-8 ft away from my TV.

    My CP72 is enclosed in a cabinet. I never hear it.
