No, this doesn't sound right. I assume you've attempted to see if it has any noise while powering up or normal operation? Best thing would be to call emotiva, the'll know if you've got something there.
Hi Thanks for youre reply Yes when it powers up theres a short hiss like half a second but i guess thats normal? Under normal operation its fine. Is this the number i should call?: 1.877.366.8324 Since i live in Norway do i add +1?
