Anybody own Marantz sa-8001?

I purchased a demo sa8001 from an av store that closed here and have always noticed that the transport mechanism makes a low rumbling noise that is audible when no music is playing. Just wondering if this is normal or if the transport supposed to be dead silent. If any owners of this model could comment, I would appreciate it. Thanks
I owned an 8001 back when they first came out and yes, the transport was noisy.
Mine is as quite as a mouse.
Was looking at your thread posts Elvis. Do you actually even own this player?
