There is a loose screw rumbling around inside the chassis everytime I move it and no I am not talking about some of the posts I have posted on Head-Fi.Org either. There literally is a loose screw inside the CD player and I am concerned. This is not a cheap CD player. I contacted the Home Theater Group, but they did not answer my first inquiry so I e-mailed them again today. It works just fine, but I am concerned.
If it truely is a screw, you should unplug the unit from the wall. Sorry, but it could damage the amp -- or worst case start a fire.

Nothing is wrong functionally. I checked all of the screws on the outside and all looks bolted down tight.
Ayre = 303-442-7300. Michael runs repairs and updates. He is extension 2. I've been working with him regarding an update for my amp, and I can tell you he is a very nice guy.

This guy thinks it sounds better if you loosen the screws a bit, so perhaps that's what the manufacturer did and the screw fell off in shipping.

You can control how tight all the screws and other hardware are though. I think as you experiment, you’ll find that everything sounds better if the screws are snug but not tight. This is a problem for manufacturers. They want products to ship without components falling off or coming loose because screws weren’t tight enough -- a pretty reasonable goal. They really do have to make all the screws tight. You, the owner, don’t have to leave them that way. You can loosen and then snug each screw to get a nice improvement in sound quality for free. Loose screws don’t sound good. In this case, "snug" means tight enough to not loosen up while the amp (or other component) sits in your listening room. If you do loosen then snug screws in an amp or other component, be sure you tighten them before shipping the component anywhere.
