I've played numerous BDs with DTS-MA without any problems until "Dark City."
Well, at least one other person is having problems with the "Dark City" (Blu-ray) sound. His problem is very similar to yours, except he is using a Sony S550.

A reviewer from DVDTOWN.COM on Jul 25, 2008 made the statement below about Dark City's sound issue on Blu-ray.
"Audio note: Users bitstreaming DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 to certain newer receivers--Denon, Integra, Onkyo, and Yamaha, among others--for decoding have reported occasional pops during playback. DTS supposedly informed the receiver manufacturers of this issue, and the manufacturers supposedly resolved it in their current models, while offering upgrades to older product. In addition, the folks at DTS supposedly have provided studios with instructions on how to reproduce DTS-HD MA 7.1 audio to avoid the problem altogether, but apparently not all studios got the memo
. Using an Onkyo 705 receiver, I found this particular disc made a small pop every time I took it out of "Pause." Since at the time of this writing I had not yet upgraded my receiver, the work-around I used was to put the receiver in "Mute" for a moment just before returning it from "Pause." Maybe New Line had this BD already completed before they could implement DTS's instructions, I don't know. Just a caution".Note
: Bold/Italic emphasis is mine. It sounds like everyone is to blame a little, although the BD35/55 apppears to be a innocent bystander in this situation. A Denon firmware update will hopefully
fix your problem.http://www.dvdtown.com/review/dark-city/blu-ray/6131/2
