I’m new to the world of the PWT and am doing a 30 day home audition together with the Stellar Gain Cell DAC connected via I2S. This factory refurbished PWT is a direct purchase from PSA and I’ve had it in use for about 3 days now.
My concern is with 2 noise issues from the player:
The drive mechanism emits a continuous grinding clackity-clack sound which I can hear during pianissimo passages of music playback from my listening position about 12 feet away on the other side of my listening room.
There is a noticeable click sound at the start of each track of every disc I’ve played.
Question: Are these 2 noise issues normal baseline for this machine or is there something wrong?
