Hi Gang


Was auditioning the Rotel 1055 vs. B&K 507 today and I noticed that when the 507 was around -10 and I paused the CD, I could hear a faint hiss through the tweeter and a slight swoosh through the woofer. This was only if you were right up on it, but the rotel was pretty much dead quiet set around the same loudness. Are B&K's noisy (relatively)?


thx

The Ref50's have been known to do of a lot of "whining" and for making other noises as well. Since the 507 has basically the same front end, I wouldn't be surprised if it has noise issues as well. It's been argued how many units are affected and how bad it is. Do a search on "whine" or "processor noise". I ended up staying away from B&K after some additional research.
