I agree. I've done a little more research and this appears to be a bigger problem than I originally thought.I hope Pioneer is addressing this issue.
It really irritates me when the seller, Pioneer or members say this abnormally loud buzzing, that can be heard from an average seated postion, is normal. The buzzing that many are reporting is not normal plasma buzzing. I've been around top of the line
plasmas for about 6 years and while I've always been able to hear a slight buzzing ... from Pannys, Fujitsus and Pioneers ... from the back of the display with the sound turned off, I've never heard buzzing from a normal seated position.
The loud buzzing being reported by a growing minority is surprising and is not normal; anyone who says that this amount of buzzing is normal doesn't want to deal with what is clearly a defect with some Kuros.
It also appears that the complaints come from owners of all displays in the Kuro line. In other words, the abnormal buzzing is not limited to non-elite Vs elite or 768 Vs 1080p. This buzzing must be related to the new Kuro design, since owners of prior generation Pioneers have not reported this issue; but why on some Kuros and not on others?
In an unscientific poll, on this forum, 22% of Kuro owners reported buzzing that was "annoying" or was "the reason they returned the set". http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/poll....ts&pollid=5659
That's an absurdly high percentage for a [the] top of the line plasma.

....They sent tech dudes out to check out my situation and confirmed that they hear the buzz from my sweet spot, though in their opinion it was normal
.It isn't normal because I've had a kuro (1150) that was quiet from the same position
, just not a 110 yet....
Normal, my a**.
