I've never seen anything like that in over 1200 hours on my 5030. Nor could I tolerate it. What settings are you using and what is your screen? Is it an acoustically transparent screen by any chance?

If the processor/AVR has XLR outputs and the Emotiva amp has XLR inputs, I can't imagine that they would not work correctly together. But I don't use XLR personally so cannot speak from experience.
