Hey all - strange thing I've got happening. I just bought a refurb Marantz 6007 and it sounds great.. BUT: A couple of days ago I noticed that when nothing was playing on one of my HDMI inputs ( in this case media player ) I was getting this strange static / white noise coming from my speakers. Not overwhelming but enough to notice. I unplugged the hdmi from said input, and indeed everything else but the speaker connections from the back of my AVR, still getting the noise. I switched to another HDMI input ( blu ray ) and that seemed to solve the problem. I was a little concerned but figured it wasn't the end of the world. Yesterday I noticed that it started to happen with the Blue ray HDMI input - again whether or not anything was plugged into it. I called Marantz and they said it COULD be a DSP hardware problem, try resetting the processor. I did, and low and behold the fuzz was gone. As I've only got a couple days grace before I can send this back to the dealer I did some further trouble shooting. The only variable was trying to play a record over the last couple of days. I plugged in the phono analog inputs, played a record, turned it off, went back to my HDMI selection - and BOOM - the fuzz was back. Seems like for some reason the HDMI input picks up distortion from the phono amp every time I try to use it, and won't go away even after I've unplugged the turntable. Weird. I'm trying to send it back. Anyone have any ideas? other then it's just bricked? ( more for out of curiosity, I'm not taking chances with this problem )
