HI .... well, I can tell you what my 807 does and maybe this will shed some light on the subject? When I turn mine on, it will "click" after about 10 seconds at which time the speaker icons light up ... then I have sound.
I have an HDMI going from my cable box to the 807 (and an HDMI going from the 807 to the TV) and as I surf channels, my 807 will "click" as it decides to change the audio format for the given channel I stop to look at ... I think if the 807 decides that the audio format needs adjustment, it will do this .... so you could say as it decides to change gears ... it will "click".
This is my 3rd Onkyo product ... the last 2 I had "clicked" like this one does, although the 807 has a lot more to think about as I change inputs, or as I change channels on the TV ... so I just kind of assume this is normal so I have not let it bother me.
If I am listening to a CD I will often change listening formats to see if I can improve the sound .... so as I am going from one format to another, of course the 807 will "click" as it goes through [and rests upon] the selection I have made .....
not sure if this answers your question ... but hope it helps.
This is actually my 2nd NR807 .... the first one I got was bad out of the box. I could not get any audio out of it no matter what I did. The speaker icons would not light up. I decided to bypass the speakers altogether by simply using the headphones, and still had no audio no matter what I did. I am using high end cables and checked everything a hundred times .... I know I had everything hooked up the right way ..... so Crutchfield did an exchange with me ..... so far, so good.
