    Has anyone else noticed that there is a high pitched whine in the background for the first part of Groundhog Day SE in the DD 5.1 track? Right after the opening credits, while Bill Murray is in the news studio doing his report and talking with "Hairdo." It seems to go away right as the "Weather Man" song comes on.

    You may not hear it at lower volumes, but if I turn it up (not obnoxiously loud, maybe just "reference" volume or a little lower) I can hear this high pitched sound in the background. It's not in the forefront (otherwise you would hope Quality Control would have caught it) but now that I hear it I can't unhear it.

    Anyone else have the same problem? Perhaps there was just a major sound error when they made this disc? (i.e. no DTS, faulty DD soundtrack)

    Damn.
    Just to make sure everyone understands:
    1. It only happens after the cloud credits, and before the "I'm your weatherman" song.
    2. It's a very high pitched whine, but not loud, just high. Like when you hear slight ringing in your ears after a concert? Only not so loud, and higher in tone. Almost like what you'd imagine a dog would hear.
    Am I making any frickin' sense? Does anyone else hear anything during that passage? [​IMG]
    I'm going from a Panny RP91 -> Sony STR-DA55ES -> Energy C6/AC300.
