Yes - I get pops through my speakers while both starting up, when making changes in the set-up menu in various places, and also when I start a Blu-ray (like going from the menu to starting a movie). It's not loud (I'm not concerned speakers are being damaged) but is annoying, and is often accompanied by a relay click - that said, not all relay clicks are associated with pops.
I get relay clicks quite a bit - pausing and restarting a movie for example. I've tried changing the mappings on the Audio Mode Preset screen - my current settings are as follows:
Analog/PCM - PLII Movie
Mono - Mono
2 Ch Source - Stereo
Dolby D - Straight Decode
DTS - Straight Decode
Other Multich Source - Straight Decode
I'd love to call Integra Tech Support about some of these issues - but honestly, my first experience calling them was kind of a joke.
Me: "So, I have this issue where the internet won't connect. Things like the Remote Controlled Set-up are grayed out. I can get the internet back if I unplug the power and ethernet, then power back up, then plug in the ethernet. Others have reported this to you guys - just wanted to let you know I'm experiencing the issue as well and the problem isn't isolated"
Integra: "Hold on, let me ask our tech guy...Nobody here has ever heard of that. Your unit must be broken - we'll have to replace it".
Me: "ummm...a lot of people have reported this - I really don't think anything is broken. Also, I get a lot of relay clicks"
Integra: "We fixed that with a firmware update on the older unit. If you are still having any clicks, your unit must be broken - we'll have to replace it."
Me: "ummm...a lot of people report this - even on the 80.1 - just wanted to let you know, I haven't been able to get it to stop".
Integra: "Sure sounds to me like you have a defective unit - Let's start the process of getting it replaced"
Maybe I was just unlucky. I don't honestly think my unit is defective.
I'd love to call them back and say - "I'm getting pops through my speakers sometimes - like when the audio locks - is this something that you guys could look into" - but I'm not sure where it'll get me...
