I have a Sony CDP-CX335 (300 disc changer) connected via digital optical to the CD IN on a Sony STR DA333ES. The first CD played after powering up the 335 will have the first second or so of music clipped but all CD's played after that will be OK. Before I got the 335 I was using my single disc DVDP to play CD's so this happened every time you put in a new disc. Is there any way to avoid the clipping? And if not, why don't the manufacturer's fix it? Surely the equipment could be designed to avoid this problem. With the 335 it only does it on the first disc (even though you're playing a multitude of different discs) because the door hasn't been opened?[/list=1] Not a major thing, I got used to it doing it on EVERY disc with the single DVDP so this is actually an improvement. I'm just a curious guy.
