I'll try to remember to measure mine tonight, but 33dB sounds about like what I was getting when I dialed in my speakers. I have it ceiling mounted though and so it doesn't bother me very much--the only time I hear it is in quiet (no music) scenes in dialogue-heavy films. And even then it's just a light fan noise.
