8330A metallic artifact when changing volume of using the mute/dim/-40.0dB

I absolutely am in love with the 8330A monitors.

but I have just noticed something new happening when I use the GLM software and change the  volume or use the mute , Dim , -40.0dB or -50dB preset levels whilst signal is running through the system. I can hear a high frequency metallic noise that I didn't hear before. 

is this normal?
