Default Futaba 9550 Idle Sounds?

I just got a Futaba 9550 servo.

When at idle, the servo makes a sort of sound. I thought the servo horn was binding it, so I took that off. Still the same.

My question is, is it normal for a digital servo to make sounds at idle? It's kinda hard to describe the sound.

Thanks in Advance

Yeah, I noticed that it buzzes abit in the center postion. But everyone I've asked says thats just what digital servos do.

But it is kinda disheartening when you spend that kinda dough on a servo and it sounds like it's gonna melt down or something the first time you turn it on.
