I just borrowed a CD from a friend, and started listening to it (reasonable volume). At the climax of the first track I listened to, I heard an awful lot of distortion coming through my speakers. This isn't the first time this has happened, although the level of distortion this time was huge. I don't know what's going on, but it's beginning to royally piss me off. I got less distortion with a H/K AVR225 with Take 2.2s than I am now with this Rotel 1075 and Veritas 2.1s. Granted the sound is much better (when it's not distorting!), but I'm at a total loss for why I'm getting all this distortion all of a sudden. Could I really be clipping my speakers? Sometimes I even get distortion, or funny squirrely noises when it's at a low level. I'm doing my best to keep things reasonable, and I don't crank the system too much, but at this point, I'm really worried I might damage something if it isn't damaged already (and I don't know about it). Suggestions please...I'm very concerned for the well-being of my system which I've invested a lot of money (for me anyways) in. Thanks.
