I am having a real rough time here. I bought this Cambridge D500SE off of ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...e=STRK:MEWN:IT I just got the Cambridge 500SEcd player hooked up (I was waiting for my parasound amp to arrive which I bought off of audiogon.com and just came yesterday) and the CD player is defective. It powers up fine but the right channel puts out static. Even when there is no music playing as soon as you hook up the cambridge random static comes out of the right speaker. I a/b'd it with my Pioneer DVD player, just taking the same cables from the cambridge and into the pioneer and the pioneer works perfectly fine with no static at all so I know it has to be the Cambridge and not the amp or anything else. I don't know exactly how you want to handle this, but the player was clearly defective right out of the box. On top of that I also have a problem with my parasound HCA-1500A amp and P/LD-1100 preamp last night from here: http://cls.audiogon.com/cgi-bin/cls....ran&1096735739 Everything was packaged beautifully. I mean it was like I was opening brand new stuff so that I was already wording in my head the positive feedback i was going to give this guy. Everything looked nearly new too. However one channel only puts out about 50% of what the other channel does (I switched every possible thing to eliminate all other variables). It has to be either the amp or the preamp. I will probably take these to parasound authorized repair shops today. And on top of all this my HK AVR7000 receiver is in the shop too needing a $250 repair. Damn whats next, my speakers going to blow up! Anyhow, how do you think I should approach this with the sellers. Do you think they should be obligated to do something. IMO, they should b/c both were defective right out of the box.
