Audio Research Ref 3 set display off/on.


Should Ref-3 save display illumination setting?
I set display off, then turn amplifier off, then on and display is on too. 

Is it correct? 
Every time amplifier is on display should be adjusted?

I believe yours is working correctly, it defaults to display on and you must adjust.  That's how my LS26 worked.
Are you turning off the power to the unit or the system? Because it will default to display on every time it loses power. I had an LS26 and now. REF5se and the display is off unless I lose power, make volume, input etc. adjustments and when I turn it on. But once the the unit is on for a few seconds the display goes off.
I turn amplifier OFF, when I turn it ON, display is ON and it will never goes OFF until I switch it OFF on remote control.

So I have to set "Display" OFF every time I turn amp ON. 
It looks very, very strange.
Sorry, I will mention the obvious answer which is of course to give ARC a call.  But it does make sense that the display would default to being on after each power up.

I would assume most people would normally want to defeat the lights when listening at night.   If you are like me, there is always the chance that I could accidentally not realize it is on when display lights are defeated and keep it running a long time before noticing.
The problem is that this display produces an audible noise, bzzzzz noise.I had Cary Audio SLP-03 and it remembered display setting on OFF.
I am curious are there any tweaks/fixes which allow to remember display setting when amp is OFF?

My Ref 3 always powers up with the display on and always has.  It's the display buzzing that is not normal.  
For kicks try setting the Ref 3 to mono and use the balance control.  Now THAT is a messed up situation.
I think always powers up with the display on is a bad design.

Sorry what do you mean by saying "For kicks try setting the Ref 3 to mono and use the balance control.  Now THAT is a messed up situation."? 
Have you tried it?  Please do and report back.
Maybe it's just mine then.  Stereo mode works fine.  In mono when I tip the balance in either direction it lowers the volume in both channels.  Thanks for the info, though I was hoping it was normal for the Ref 3:(  
The Ref 3 will remember the display when you turn it off via the power button.
If the display set to off and you press the power button to turn off the Ref3, then when you turn it back on via the power button then the display will only come back on during the mute cycle: after the mute cycle (45 seconds?) finishes, the display will turn back off again (or to wherever you set it).
If you unplug the unit then the display will stay on after you power it up--it won't remember the setting.
Unfortunately it does not work for me.
I tried every possible ways, no success, it does not save display setting when amp is off.

Please can someone with Ref-3 try this and confirm?

BTW I also have audible high frequency noise from display.
I have recorded it.

Are you sure that noise is from the display? If so, there is definitely something wrong with your Ref 3.
Yes, this noise from display. If display switched off - no noise.
I also found that the more lights on display the louder noise.
Сan anyone confirm the following statement?
