    This problem is something that I am reporting in the very long thread about the S&V review of the Marantz SR-7200. http://207.173.159.237/uub/Forum14/HTML/044895-8.html#190

    As you pointed out,it isn't normal at all,and should be inactive.I haven't encountered this on my Denon AVR-3801,3600,3300 and a Sony ES STR DA-777ES.

    My Sony shuts down the rears in stereo. No sound at any level.

    I didn't hear noise from the surrounds. I didn't go through the trouble of sticking my ear right up against them, but they are closer than my mains and I still didn't notice any noise at full volume. Again, I only had noise in stereo mode. Surround modes didn't seem noisey to me. Can't test it anymore since its at the distributor. I won't post other 6200/7200 comments here, since there's the other thread. If and when I get a 6200 back, I'll check everything, including the surrounds.

    Chris, are you using a digital or analog input when testing?

    My Yamaha 2095 used to hiss in the back in stereo mode. My Denon 3801 doesn't. Crappy design by Yamaha? Who knows.
