Turbo Noises

How should a turbo sound, what are the signs of wear? My turbo howls a little around 1200 revs when under load and does vanish, it’s not so bad when the car has warmed up. Also I can hear a slight whistle when revving but all turbo 's do that. It would be good if we could get some sound samples on here, sounds silly but i'v noticed alot of Laguna owners curious to how a turbo should sound.
Everyone out to your cars with a mic and start revving you engines.
