I'm currently using a Pioneer Elite receiver as a processor - connected to a 5-channel power amp. I have one (main) speaker that breaks up and cuts out. I checked all the speaker cables, everything is fine, and I just replaced the interconnects, so there's no problem their. What puzzles me is that I had this speaker on channel 1 of the amp...then I switched it to Channel 2, moving the other main speaker to Channel 1. It began working properly. The strange thing is - you would think that other main speaker that I moved to Channel 1 would now have the problem - but it doesn't. They are both working fine at the moment. What worries me is that I have a new Marantz 7005 processor being delivered today, and I'm worried I might run into this problem again during setup. Do I have a problem with my amp? Any thoughts?

Guess you'll find out for sure when you set up the Marantz in your system.

Meanwhile, you switched the main speakers around to different channels on the power amp and now you have no problem. So it sounds like you simply had a speaker cable that may have not been cleanly connected to me. I wouldn't worry about it right now because you nolonger have a probem. Again, just set up everything when the new Marantz arrives and see what happens. Good luck.
