I'm starting this thread to hopefully tabulate those individuals who have started with a buzzy panel, of the following models:


5010

6010

110

150

5020

6020

111

151


and subsequently (either from their vendor or Pioneer themselves) had the set replaced for a unit that does not buzz.


I have empirical firsthand evidence that buzz-free units exist, but the only two to ever be delivered to my house have both buzzed loudly. Has anyone who was dissatisfied with the buzz level of their set had it replaced and received one with noticeably less or no buzz?

you missed the 4280, 950, 5080 and 1150 8g models. the 4280 and 5080 were the best selling 8G models so you should get more responses adding them.

Had a 5080 that had a serious buzzing issue. Could hear it anywhere up to 25'.

Returned it.


Bought a 5020 a couple months later.

It hums very lightly when first turned on for about 10-15 seconds and is then quiet.

Have had it a week with about 100 hours on it now.

Haha, sorry I didn't know the full gamut of Kuro models, but yeah let's extend this to all 8G, 9G, and whatever other Pioneer models had known buzzing problems.

By far the most "issues" of buzzing came with the 6010's. Personally my 5080 is quiet as a church mouse - thank heavens!!

I love your story, I hope we get more of these from people that have loud buzzers.

I had a 5010 buzzer and decided to return it for a 5080 and roll the dice. Considering the $1200 difference it was worth the try. The bonus was the 5080 didn't buzz and after 7 months it is still quiet. Only the TV changed in my set-up.


I believe I am one of the few lucky ones in the 8G buzz thread. After looking at a large number of 8G's in showrooms I would estimate the chances are 50/50.
