Let me start by saying I'm a really big newbie in regards to stereos and 5.1, etc. I have a KLH R-5100 receiver and just bought the Polk RM6800 speakers. They sound amazing!
However, whenever I'm not playing something which is 5.1 surround, I get a static noise coming out of all speakers. This is especially noticable when I am watching my satellite which, even though it is hooked up with digital coax, is only in stereo mode. The static seems to disappear in 5.1 mode with a true 5.1 thing playing (like a DVD). If I put 5.1 mode on with the satellite, I still get the static.
The static is noticable at low volumes, but it is somewhat annoying. Does anyone know what i can do for this? I'm beginning the think its the receiver, but I'm not totally sure. Thanks!
