So what do you guys think about the fan(s) in the AVP? I don't know if the volume from the fan has gotten any louder since I got the AVP 2+ years ago, but I am starting to notice it more. I can hear it from about 10ft away, when there is no music playing.
When I got my 3D update, I took off the top cover and blew out the innards with an air compressor. Plenty of force! It wasn't very dusty after two years, so I don't imagine it's gotten much worse in the 2 month's since I did that.
It's kind of a joke that Pure Direct doesn't really appear to shut off the video circuits, because the fan I hear (I think) is coming on to cool the Realta chip. Seems like Pure Direct would shut down almost everything, negating the need for fans.
My AVP is on the top shelf of a stand-alone rack, open on all sides, plenty of ventilation. If I get bored, maybe I will take it apart to see which fan is making the noise, and see if there is an ultra quiet replacement version.
