I have either a VA 3 or 4 model 2 and it has some sound issues that have gotten worse since I bought it. There is some serious buzzing noise going on in the background which gets louder when there are bright colors on the screen. It almost drowns out the music when the screen is white. Certain parts/instruments in songs are also very quiet too. Does anyone have an idea what it might be? I'm thinking about trading it for a HDG model 1 if the store I go to has one. The one thing that would worry me about that is the capacitors. I wouldn't really want to get one if it is going to crap out on me in a year or whenever. I have no means of replacing them. I would really like having stereo sound with the headphone jack.
