Both receivers are very noisy

Both of my receivers are very loud. they can drown out the show I'm watching and keep me awake at night. Sounds like a fan running.

Both receivers being that loud with the fan is an indication of possible failure soon.
Are the receivers on a flat hard surface? Do they have 4 inches on all sides and not in an enclosed cabinet? There should be nothing stacked on top or under it. Is the fan vent clear?

From your description, the fans are working overtime and some of the things listed above could be the cause. If nothing in the above list is causing this, the revivers will need to be replaced.
