I bought one of these systems from apple's web store in october of last year after hearing good things about it. They were on special offer, so I thought I'd try them out.
Out of the box, I've nothing but problems. They emit an especially loud hiss, loud enough to be extremely irritating. Surprisingly, this hiss is still present even in standby mode! This means I have to turn it off at the plug and when I do that there is an extremely loud popping noise from the speakers. It's as though the standby isn't working at all. I've been in touch with audica, they sent me out a new amplifier which didn't change anything and that seems to be the exent of their interest in this problem. Also the buttons fell out of the remote after a month.
I had a look at the customer reviews on apple's product page and many of them report similar problems (also, they seem to have all been bought at the time of the special offer!). Considering this was given an award by What Hi-Fi?, I was wondering if you have experienced similar issues? Are the problems I've described known problems or did apple offload a bunch of faulty goods under the pretense of a discount?
