I'd appreciate some advice about the incredibly unpleasant high end I've been hearing from my system lately. I have an Oppo BDP-105 that I'm running from the multichannel outs directly into my Primare A30.5 amp. My mains are B&W 804s, and the center is an HTM3s. When watching movies, I've been hearing some nasty high end distortion. It's subtle, but when characters raise their voices, there's some faint "crackle" or fuzz; it doesn't happen when characters are speaking conversationally. Also of note, I've having to run the volume on the Oppo at ~75 to get my preferred volume levels. I enjoy my movies loud, but not earbleed levels.
Is I'm hearing clipping? I realize now that despite having been an audio enthusiast for years, I've never been clear as to what that terms refers to. Also, is this likely an amp problem, or is this something in my player or speakers? It's driving me crazy.
Thanks so much for any input!
