Hello all, this may be tale of hearbreak, so be forwarned! After buying the 5700 and hooking it up I was quite pleased as I was listening to some DVD-Audio as well as CDs. I decided to put on some quieter tunes and see how those sounded. While they did sound nice, I could barely concentrate on the music becasue of the racket coming from the unit. Soft passages of dialog in movies were hard to watch too. I would like to know if anyone else has a loud SD-5700. I don't seem to remember hearing my mate's unit make that much noise. I'm ready to return the unit and wait for the Denon 3800. $300 for a usable DVD player may be too good to be true. I'd be willing to make a quick tweak if any would help. Thanks for your time.
