Hello, I'm a newcomer to the site, and I'd like to ask a question and get some advice.
I'm a proud owner of a B&K AVR 307, firmware version 2.05. I love the unit, I'm using an Oppo BDP-93 with analogue interconnects and the sound is fantastic. It fits my needs.
Lately though, the right rear channel will sporadically output white noise when the unit is in standby "sleep" mode. It sounds like wind blowing through an open window. Turning the unit on will cause the sound to stop. Unplugging it or pressing the hard power button will also stop the noise, although it lasts a minute before fading completely. I searched around this site, but I didn't find much on this issue. Currently I've "fixed" the problem by connecting the rear speakers to the "Surround Back" channels. (5.0 system on a 7.1 receiver) I'm fortunate to live 200 miles from Eastern Elite (former B&K employees), so shipping might be reasonable. I checked their labor rates and they seem OK.
Anyone have experience with this problem, or even better have you sent anything to Eastern Elite for service? Would you send it off for repair or just wait for it to die and replace it?
This thread looks like a similar problem, I will post here as well, thank you.Edited by jckinney - 12/31/12 at 8:49am
