Question about Bose Acoustimass 15 System
When listening to a DVD or cable television, frequently the volume will cut in and out. Sometimes it just goes to a very low level until I press "volume +" on the remote control, then it goes to the normal volume.
I don't listen to a lot of music, but haven't noticed it on CD's. But, cannot 100% sure say it will not happen, since I hardly listen to music. The DVD and CD player are the same device.
I am connected through a brand new Sony Receiver. I have the same issue through a 10 year old Kenwood Receiver.
Since a CD/DVD player is a digital device, it can be susceptible to such things as power line glitches, interference from other digital equipment and even the ignition interference from nearby passing cars. With older analog gear, you might get a short burst of static, whereas it can completely shut down a digital device sometimes (glitches interrupt its internal program). Sadly, there's nothing you can do about this except plugging the unit into a power line conditioner. You might try jiggling the connecting cables (especially the audio cable), but it sounds more like a random glitch since you can use your remote to fix it. They haven't yet worked out all the bugs in digital equipment, unfortunately. It's also possible that a defect in the DVD player was not caught at the factory during final test.
