    My brother recently bought a refursbished ONKYO TX-SR501 off of ecost.com and was disappotined to find that every few minutes the audio cuts out for just a second or two then comes back on. Its does this constantly never ceasing. Now, is this a common problem or a simple one that could be fixed easy? Or should he contact ONKYO to see if it could be repaired? Thanks.

    Does this happen with different sources? I listen to the Music Choice channels on DirecTV and lately some of them have been doing the exact same thing you described.

    Using both analog and digital connection? Or just digital? I think he has a bad cable or something wrong.

    Could be defective. I had no issues with the two I recently installed.

    All speakers work great all the time, during calibration?

    Seam,

    Based on what I have read, the most probable casue of this is defective cable,speakers.

    Also, does this happen on low volume too ? or only when you crank it up ?

    He does have old speakers but they work fine with his old reciever in place. And it was happening on a reasonable voume level. Nothing really high or low. The cables he just bought.

    I had the same issue with the same reciever. It was my fault though - some of my exposed speaker cable was touching other speaker cable. Tighten up your connections and make sure there are no shorts. Good luck!
