I am frustrated by the frequent skipping that occurs when playing bass-heavy CDs at high volumes. I'm certain it is not caused by scratched discs. Both my CD player (an old Onkyo) and DVD player (cheap Samsung) exhibit the problem with multiple discs. My subwoofer is at least 8 feet from the players and yet I am forced to turn down the sub AND the volume before skipping stops. I think the DVD player has pixelized or paused a few times from bass-heavy movies, but this has not been a common problem. So, I am trying to decide what troubleshooting steps to take: 1) Move the CD player. It is currently on a plate of glass that is perched atop my RPTV. Moving it would be a pain and the only option, other than buying a rack, is to move it atop a main speaker. 2) Isolate the CD player somehow. Any advice on this would be appreciated. 3) Purchase a new player that has better skip protection. I have been eying the Yamaha 6480 and notice that it lists "Shockproof Memory" as one of its features. Is there a certain feature I should be looking for or a brand that does a better job than others at preventing skips?
