I have another bad 700 I'm waiting to get rid of. But I can get into those volumes easily enough.
Static in right channels, second unit for me. I've also found bass seems to come and go..... strange.
Waiting for the new CA receivers before getting an Arcam replacement.
Air circulation, properly connected speaker wire, stray wire, etc. Maybe a factory reset is in order.
Last thing to check is what kind of speakers you have. If you are running a set of big Maggies, for instance, that could cause problems. Or maybe you have the bass up too high. It's very common with HT types.
Personally, I've been disappointed in SQ, codec reliability(and the resulting loud noises), HDMI handshakes, the amps, static, and audio music playback SQ is horrendous.
I'm amazed how "amazingly spectacular" this receiver is to so many people. Their addiction to room correction blinds them to actual SQ. Which, of course, is the same for "ALL AMPS", i guess. Because "all amps are the same" in the AVS world.
