    HAs anyone had this problem with their Onkyo? there is a crackling noise coming out of my rear left speaker. I even switched speakers.... same crackling out of the same position. I'm powering Axiom M1's in the rear. Anything I can do here? Onkyo should be under warranty but is there anything I can do/check short of that?

    thanks~

    I believe this is a well known problem with the latest Onkyos. If you can't find any info on this forum go to the hometheaterspot.com and go to their onkyo/integra forum and you will find a lot of info on this problem. Its been described to me as a "ticking" sound that starts in one speaker and after a period of time goes to the other speakers. It is supposedly an easy problem to fix(but the correct parts will be needed and may take awhile to get), just let your service center know of your problem and a new chip or two later the problem should be fixed.
