I'd like to know if anyone is having this problem. I have been putting my wav files onto an external hard drive and playing through one of the USB ports. Very infrequently, as the song starts there might be a quick moment of what sounds like white or pink noise,Like a blip, then the file starts. Tonight, as I was listening at a rather robust sound level, one song ended and as the next song started there was about a 5 or 6 second burst of this noise, I got to the mute button as fast as I could but by then both tweeters in my 3 month old Von Schweikert' VR-33's were blown..... you could smell them through the fabric.
Seems to me I've read somewhere in this forum that the Oppo will do something like this. Like I said, it will do this for a fraction of a second every now and then but nothing like this! I got out the original CD and no problem with that particular track. I played it again off the hard drive and again white noise.
I am going to post this in the BDP-105 owners thread as well to increase my chances of getting to the bottom of this.
I appreciate any and all input.
And, I am a lot madder than I'm letting on here on this forum.
Well, I can relate. I had just started watching a movie and it had been playing for just a few minutes and all of sudden there was a very loud burst of very high-pitched sound. I too made it to my volume as fast as I could. I then had to shut my rig off completely and pull all power cords. Waited five minutes and, bless the Lord, all was well. This was just using the single-ended analog outs and watching a movie. I only use the 105 for analog; no use of the DAC via USB. Ramatam, really sorry to hear about your new speakers. I hope you will find a good and equitable resolution to the fried tweeters.
