Yeah this is how I lived with it before mine got exchanged. But is it really too much to ask that a top-of-the-line $3,000 3D set be watchable from head-on? I'd love to see BMW design a car that can't handle driving straight forward but tell their clients it's in spec.
At first I was OK with viewing it from an angle but there are certain scenes where that optical distortion will become very obvious when one side of the screen is larger than the other from your viewing perspective.
I always noticed that the buzz is more prominent when you turn your ear towards it. This supports my theory that the noise is generated off the glass and has very little to do with your room acoustics. The sound waves are emanating perpendicular to the glass in a tunnel of sound rather than bouncing off walls and objects in the room.
I also think the noise generated by the coils gets louder at a distance due to a cumulative effect, like an audience clapping or a nest of hornets. These are all pretty large screens so it's impossible to hear all 3 until you back up several feet.
I had mine plugged into a monster clean power unit. But since I was able to hear the same buzz in different stores I believe that the problem cannot be fixed externally. That said, has anyone tried to plug this in to an actual power conditioner (not just a line noise filter, aka "Clean Power"), like a musician would use for a high-end amp?
