I’d like to ask fellow LS50W owners if this is common or some kind of (small) fault:
I have both speakers at my work desk on isoAcoustics stands so I’m really close to the speakers. When I turn the speakers on, I noticed some noises that I think there weren’t present at the beginning. My English isn’t so good to describe the sound properly, but it’s really really quiet pops / clics very similar to the noise You can hear on “dusty” vinyl records.
When turning the device on, it can be heard in this order:
- power button
- relay click in left speaker
- “pops / clics” sound <- THIS IS MY CONCERN
- welcoming music
- “pops / clics” sound - little bit different from 3) <- THIS IS MY CONCERN
Then the speakrs sounds and play as usual without any distortion or problem.
Similar situation is present when turning off the set. I’m quite sure that the 3) a 5) weren’t so much noticeable when the speakers were new. I can have now about 200hours played on them.
Thank You for sharing Your thoughts!
