    No complaints on the sound quality but the trasport/drive is quite noisy. My Panasonic RV31 DVD player is much quiter.

    It makes "clunk" sound when power up and swap disc. It even make noise ('chirping' like a high speed CD-ROM) when it begins to spin CD, not a constant noise though.

    I've never owned a cd changer before so I guess this is the way they are at times.
    Still it plays cds/sacds very well and that is the bottom line.

    Even the more expensive 555ES has thumping noise problems on some discs so that may be what we have to live with.

    BTW, My Panasonic RP91 DVDA player is also not the quietest player on the block. Modern discs like DVD's/DVDA's/ and SACD's must require alot of jiggling inside these players.

    Kevin, all the Sony SACD changers make a "thunk" sound upon power-up. Also, these players do exhibit a "woodpecker" sound on some discs. I have observed it, and it is not a serious problem. Look for a thread here started by Mike Loiterman for more information on this phenomenon.

    No problem, Kevin. From my listening position, I can only hear the pecking sound when the disc starts spinning. Once the music starts, I can't hear it. When I have put an ear right up to the player, I have noticed that the pecking only happens on the first two or three tracks. It must have something to do with the high spinning frequency at the beginning of an SACD.
