If you are looking into watching Bluray with ps3 at 1080p with lossless audio, think twice before ordering this receiver. You might get lucky or If you have a cheap HTIB speakers and EDTV, you probably can get away without even noticing buzzing sound.
I would not take the chance.
Have to agree, it is impossible NOT to notice the buzzing through MPCM sources with Audysee/Dynamic EQ. Frankly, I'm surprised it isn't a larger point of discussion if it was truly a large scale hardware issue
that affected most if not all of the early units before people started reporting it. It had to be a pretty sizable chunk if broke units are still unsold and/or remained unsold for months after launch. There's no telling how many people just use standard DD/DTS sources (a vast majority), while many others opt for the "Direct" listening mode. If your unit's affected, the buzz is present on every source, setting, and mode--you just REALLY have to look for it. 98% of people would never notice the NON-Audysee/EQ/MPCM magnified buzz, and if they did, they would just assume it was normal variant of the standard hiss (as the volume has to be cranked to unrealistic levels to spot it from sitting distance).
