    I have a Pioneer VSX-810S and just today I was listening to my new Swan 5.2's and I am not sure what I hear but it's coming from the right channel and it sounds like a short high-pitched chirp or scratch. It's intermitten and only seems to happen when it's turned up a little. Anyone?

    FYI- I just pulled out an older RCA cd-player just to get some listening in while I save up for a nice one. Could this be a possible source. I've had the speakers hooked up since last week Friday and this is the first time I've listened to CD's. I have not noticed anything wrong while watching movies.

    TIA

    I'll guess the player. You could connect to another input to verify. Good luck

    You know what? I had reason to suspect the CD player also which is why I brought it up. I played the same CD in a brand new Sony CD/DVD and not only did the "noise" go away, it sounds better, too.

    Peace out!

    Yeah probably a problem with the player. Also make certain you didn't hook it up to a PHONO input (if that receiver has one). PHONO, unbeknowst to many, is just that--it is ONLY for record players requiring the standard RIAA-equaliser stage before amplification.

    I'm only suggesting a check on this because what you describe is sometimes what you get when you connect something like a CD player or other audio source to a PHONO input, though it would probably be from both channels not just the one...
