Tvad, thanks again, that's exactly what I want to hear!
Pitch Noise !!!!!
I was enjoying the 5400ES this afternoon at a moderate listening level and all of the sudden I jumped on my feet when I heard this loud Pitch noise coming from the speakers and music just stopped. I immediately thought it was a electric failure (blackout) and that the noise was caused by the alarm on my computer UPS, but it was not! Every component was on (powered) and the display on the 5400ES was showing "Please Wait" during that period of annoying Pitch noise sound. It only lasted 10 - 15 seconds and after the noise was gone the display showed "reading" and afterwards the CD tracks were displayed. I hit play on the remote and it started playing track 1, music OK. Three (3) hours has passed since the reported incident and everything still normal.
The player is almost 150 hrs and being in brake-in constantly 24-7.
Here is a link, check it out just to have an idea of the type of sound that came from the speakers.
Have anyone else experienced this?
