Question about Pioneer VSX-D458 Receiver
Disconnect the speakers and see what happens. Carefully examine the speaker cables for unwanted connections (shorts).
Take a clue from when the power problem appeared. Something was moved and made the buzz a (probable) dead short.

Unit is pretty old I had one of these back in 98-99.
Time to upgrade a service tech is going to cost you $150 just to open it up and figure out whats bad.
Pioneer ok but check out Denon's line of receivers Onkyo is good too but they have a high rate of repairs
Pioneer doesn't make them like they used to that D1S was a tank, had tons of audio / video inputs was one of the first with video upconverting had lots of power and a great front display panel. BUT technology has come along way and pioneer hasn't kept up. They even stopped making high end TV's a few years ago even though they were regarded as the best sets out there.
