    Hello to all,
    I am a newbie to this forum and HT.
    I have asked two questions before this one and if it wasn't for you guys I would still be behind my A/V cabinet.
    Thanx again!
    I have a Harman Kardon AVR 520 and a bose AM 15.Iv'e already been made aware of my bad choice in speakers and we are looking to dump the bose ASAP.
    My question is that when I turn the HK 520 on I get a Loud buzz from the bose system.
    I have the acoustimas turned up all the way.
    I have optical connection from the HK DVD 50 to the HK 520.
    Is there any quick fix or explanation to the buzz.
    It buzzes for only one sec. then everything seems O.K.
    Thanx to all in advance.

    My though is if you are leaving the AM15's amp on all the time, and it does not have a "soft start" or delay circuit when it starts receiving signal, that is most likely why you hear the buzz and is farily common. Unfortunately, I don't have a good answer as to how to prevent it aside from a switch for the AM15 that you turn on after the 520 is already on.
