Loud bump at swithcing on/off

Hello,
I've recently bought a pair of 8020 and after some days of use I've noticed that one of them (just one) shows a "bump" when is switched on/off. It reminds me the behaviour of my old NAD 3020 back in the eighties, it seems the same kind of "bump".
Only one monitor is doing so, while the other is not
.
Is it normal? Should I contact distributor (speakers are one week old!).
Thanks in advance!

Hi,

Could you tell which revision (A, B or C) your units are? Typically there is a some sort of start-up sound in every active speaker, but obviously it should be relatively similar between each unit. I would suggest you to contact your local distributor/dealer for further information.

Thanks for replying. They're C revision, anyway I've contacted my distributor, it seems that the unit is damaged :(
