Which players are the quietest and which are the loudest?


I have the Phillips (haven't used it yet though; it's still in the box) and am curious how it compares, especially with the PS3. When I play DVDs on my Xbox 360 it is louder than with a normal DVD player ... is the same true of the PS3? (Xbox 360 is incredibly loud when playing games btw)

The PS3 is louder than the Sony and Sammy stand-alone units but is nowhere near the windblower the 360 is especially playing games. I've had each unit 2 feet behind my head when watching movies and I couldn't hear the stand-alone players but I can hear the PS3 during dialog only parts of a movie.

Do you sit two feet from it?



Being Bluetooth wireless, you could put it in another room if noise is an issue.

I am sitting approx. 14ft. from my PS3, and don't notice the sound during a movie. I do, however, notice it when I turn it off. It's not loud, though.

I just bought my PS3 over the weekend and was bracing myself for all the noise it supposedly makes. To my surprise I can barely hear it (sitting about 8 ft. away). Is it possible Sony made a software/hardware modification to the second batch to hit the stores?

Actually I am one of the few that thinks the PS3 is a loud device. I can hear it from 12ft away during quiet scenes.


My Sony BDP-S1 is whisper quiet. Can't hear it at all.

My theatre room is only 12 feet long and my seating is 10 feet from the screen with the PS3 and projector right behind where I sit so thats the only reason I hear it and thats only during very quiet scenes.

In my bedroom where I have another PS3 I sit about 6 feet from the tv and I can't hear it, my 20" iMac makes more noise in sleep mode! I'd say the PS3 is pretty quiet.
