I did eliminate all the possibilities of faulty wires, speakers, tried different sources - the hiss and clicks are there.
Any ideas? Should I RMA the thing and get a replacement?
If possible I would send you unit back to the vendor as defective. This way the vendor pays the return shipping and you get a new unit. If you RMA the unit won't Onkyo have you pay the outbound shipping (50+ lbs)? It's quite possible that some or all of these anomalies may be exclusive to your unit.
I am still amazed at how much variation in operation that components are from owner to owner and it is not exclusive to Onkyo.
