Try placing 2 other speakers on the FL/FR speaker posts to determine if the issue is with the speakers or the AVR. If the AVR, try doing at least 4-5 microprocessor resets in a row. If still no joy, then likely amp failure. As a work around, try setting AMP ASSIGN to "Spkr-C" and move the FL/FR speaker wires from the FL/FR speaker posts to the Surround Back L/R speaker posts instead.

Think you have a defective AVR? Owner's manual - Factory reset 4-5 times in a row.

Since I assumed my front speakers are not the issue I skipped the first suggestion. I could have tried my rears as fronts though, but they do work for the first five minutes, sometimes even restart working when they were off for some time (I notice by the same sound as if I turn the SR6006 on or off).
I did some five or six resets of the microprocessor in a row and then tried to go through speaker set-up again, but unfortunately everything was the same as just before.
I then set the SR6006 to SPKR-C and connected the fronts to the Bi-Amp connectors, restarted the SR6006 and managed to go all the way through set-up procedure.
I am currently playing the SR6006 for approx. half an hour now. I did hear the same sound I heard before when the fronts switched off, but since these are now connected to Surround Back L/R all seems to be working fine (which proves to me my initial assumption was right).
My conclusion: something is wrong in the Front Speakers signal processing. I guess I have to go see an A/V doctor since my practical knowledge for electric engineering is quite minimal...
By the way: I don't know if this is of any help, but I noticed that I did not mention the speakers before. I used to think that SR6006 should be able to be compatible with almost all speakers, but I am just making sure... All are from Wharfedale Diamond series:
- Fronts: 10.7,
- Rears: 10.2,
- Center: 10.CM,
- Sub: 10.MX.
