Turn off or mute "clicking" noise receiver makes when chaning audio listening modes

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
If I am changing the TV channel between an HD channel and SD channel and the audio on the receiver goes from Dolby Digital to Stereo, my receiver makes a click sound. Is there a way to turn this off or mute it? It is annoying when channel surfing.
I have an Onkyo TX-SR503 receiver. It is connected to my tv via an optical audio cable.

Nope. At least mine doesn't. Maybe if you check every menu....I couldn't find it on my HTRC370 in any case plus I've read of many that do this (believe it is the sound of a relay). Just stop watching the stuff with poor audio and video...SD? Why? wink.gif

No, that is just how Onkyo's work.  It is switching the amp section off/on when changing input types and sources.

My Onkyo 3008 clicked when I did almost anything (pause/fast forward on the DVR, mute, input change, etc). In my experience, Onkyo and Denon are the biggest offenders on the excessive clicking. My Yamaha is dead silent except when powering the unit on/off. I had just assumed that ALL receivers clicked, so it was a pleasant surprise. biggrin.gif

My Denon rarely clicks if at all. My Onkyo frequently clicked.

My cheapo 1612 is the loudest clicker I've ever heard, although it does it less frequently than the Onkyo. Perhaps it is more subdued on the higher end Denons (I believe you have the 4311).

I have the 4520. It does click for a few operations but not nearly as frequently as my 5508.

The clicking is the noise made by the nice mechanical relays Onkyo use. If they used cheap solid state relays there would be no audible clicking. The relay activates when you change sound programs - eg from Dolby 5.1 to Stereo etc. One way to minimise it is to make these changes less often. A way to do that is to set up the AVR so that all sources use whatever you prefer all the time - eg DD 5.1 always defaults to DD 5.1 PLIIz or whatever, 2.0 channel always defaults to DD 5.1 PLIIz and so on.
