Last night, I was giving my new receiver and speaker pair a final listening session before packing it up for our move. For about a week or so, I'd noticed subtle, random noise, usually coming from playback of PVR source from a weak signal broadcast. Last night, for the first time, while playing a cd (through DVD player as transport over TOSlink), I got a burst of static. I stopped the disc, turned the receiver off, checked the speaker connections (but not the power cord), fired everything up again, and for the next hour, everything was fine. Same thing this morning for about an hour. As I was disconnecting the cables and interconnects, the power cord popped off the back of the receiver by itself. It's a two prong, 16ga removeable cord. My sub has an 18ga cord that is otherwise identical in shape. I plugged it into the receiver (but did not turn it on) and found it fit more snuggly. It also required a bit more effort to disconnect from the receiver. As the noise/static is more or less random, and I have to pack everything up today, should I go back to my dealer with this or can I just chalk it up to the loose cord (which I'll replace when we finish the move)? The receiver is under warranty for three more years (just got it last month) so I can get it serviced later if I have to. I'm a little gunshy, though, as before I got the Integra, I bought an Arcam AVR200 which was defective. I replaced it with a second unit, also defective, so I went with my second choice, the Integra. I had no static or blown fuse problems with my Denon AVR1600 using the same outlet, power bar, speaker wire, interconnects etc. Anyway, if anyone with electrical experience tells me that the loose power cord is the likely culprit, I'll just replace it later. I'd appreciate some peace of mind on this. Thanks.
