TEAC CR-H258i Transformer Hum
I bought a TEAC CR-H258i from Richer Sounds - £149.95 including the ipod dock which I thought was great value. It was easy enough to set up and all the functions worked fine though reading a 16gb memory took ages - about 5 mins - and the remote could have been better. The problem that I had was that there is a transformer hum when the unit is on - admittedly, it can't be heard most of the time as it is drowned by music, speech, etc., but, in quiet passages it is quite noticeable. I took it back and had to make an 80 mile round trip to another branch to get another and, annoyingly, the replacement is exactly the same - is this to be expected? I bought the unit to replace an older model - the CR-L600 - which I still have and there is absolutely no noise from this unit. Am I right to be unhappy - should I take the new unit back yet again?
