If I mute, and put my ear close to the (now wall-mounted) screen, in 1
or 2 positions I can make out quiet buzzes. If my ear is more than 6
inches from the screen, I can't hear anything. I guess the wall is
allowing any sound to multiply & bounce (not dampen) before it reaches
my ear; I consider the hardware near-silent.

I've discovered that Intelligent Frame Creation [ON] enhances this
perception, although can still be present when it is set [OFF].
