    Yo -

    Love my 563A EXCEPT for one annoying issue: I occasionally hear a snappy-ticky sound when listening to DVD-Audio or SACD discs through the analog multichannel outputs. It only occurs in the silence between disc tracks, and it crops up in randomly different speakers - I don't think it's related to the center-channel noise issue I've read about.

    Has anyone else had a similar experience?

    General question: How do people who have issues with this player deal with it - through Pioneer or the retailer? I'd exchange it at Best Buy for a different unit, but I already threw the box away (I know, duh...).

    Sorry if this has already been addressed - I searched around, but didn't find any similar posts.

    I've been through six of these babies with the center
    channel noise, but that's a different story.

    All of them have done the same thing you mention between tracks.
    It happens occasionally when switching between tracks with the
    forward button. I don't recall it happening during normal listening.

    I agree that it is annoying.

    I imagine Best Buy will exchange it without the box if it's defective
    and within the 30 Day return period. It's worth a shot.

    Every one I've exchanged at BB (with the box) has ended up
    back on the shelf as an open box item without the box.
