SK10Y Audio issue
I just got a SK10Y and put it through its paces to see if I like it. I'm quite impressed overall, it can handle some of my toughest songs well enough, but I've found a song that plays quite poorly on it. I'm wondering if any of you have the same issue with your SK10Y. The song is "Grandmaster Jam Session" by Mark Mothersbaugh (Thor Ragnarok album). The first 7 seconds of the song is descending (in pitch) continuous sound. On all my other sound systems (including from an iPhone X's tiny speaker!) that descending sound effect can be heard throughout the 7 seconds. But on the SK10Y, it starts, then gently drops out (in volume) twice during the descent. So, 2 seconds at full/normal volume, 1 second very low volume, 2 seconds coming back to full volume and then back down to low, 1 second very low volume, then the last 2 seconds are there again at full/normal volume.
Almost as if... there are frequencies in that descending pitch scale that the SK10Y can't play. I've tried turning on/off every single possible feature I could find, and using different sources (Apple TV 4K through ARC, optical, iPhone through BT...) but nothing changes the outcome for this song. (all modes: Music, Movie, Standard...)
Does yours do it? (Compare your SK10Y's playback of this first 7 seconds of that song with the same 7 seconds on any other sound system)
Trying to determine if my unit is defective.
