    Default slight static sound with voices

    I think this really only happens when watching dvds.....When watching a dvd, during many movies when someone talks in the movie there is a slight static/ distortiony sound to the voice. This happens on high or low volume. I have eliminated the possibility of it being the player or the center channel. So decoder or are many dvds just poorly produced?

    -To add, this noise is VERY slight but certainly audible

    Check your cable connections or replace them. See what happens then get back to us.
    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    maybe distortion purposefully added to the sound track? I know a lot of radio ads do that to make the voices more attention-grabbing, but it's annoying as you-know-what.

    Maybe a tweeter on one the front channels is blown.

    Let's get a little more serious here. What system are you using to listen to movies (how many speakers and what arrangement)? Do you use the same system to listen to music, or do you reduce the number of speakers to a conventional stereo setup?

    It could be any number of things: outputs for one channel are bad on your receiver, one set of cables is bad, connections are bad for one speaker.... etc.

    You could try disconnecting all except one speaker and play a known "static-y" track or section. Alternate which speaker is plugged in until you find which one is bad. If multiple speakers are bad, then the problem is probably in the receiver.
