Probably a dumb question ... but not sure of exactly what's going on. This morning while stumbling around in the dark looking for the remote, I bent over in front of a speaker and heard a "buzz."
Listened to each speaker (not the sub) and heard the same buzz. Had to get within a foot or two - but it was there.
First, I turned off the AVR, still there. Then I turned off the amp. Gone!
Repeated both a couple times ... still there and apparently at the amp, the amp had just been repaired a few weeks ago with no residual issues.
So now I'm just pizzed and head out the door to go get a paper. When I return I try to hear the buzz again - but it's gone! All is normal. WTH?
So as I sit and read the paper I'm mentally sorting thru the possibilities, but have no clue. It was a "buzz," sort of mixed with a bit of static ... started wondering about my power supply.
My system is plugged in to two outlets with one supplying a multiple input surge protector, the other powering the sub and one of the cabinet outlets for the TV and DVR. Other plugs use recepticles in the cabinet but ultimately lead to that surge protector.
When I add it all up there are eleven users of electricity being powered by those two outlets.
Our house is 1984 vintage and we've had a couple gremlens over the years. Power coming to the neighborhood runs underground ...
Does this sound like a power supply issue? If so, would a conditioner help? Is this question as dumb as it now sounds?
