I know there are some real pros in here, so I'm hoping someone can help diagnose my problem. I have a 5 speaker surround system running off an Onkyo receiver that's 4-5 years old. For the past week my rear speakers have been popping and crackling sporadically. Then tonight, all of the sound went out for all speakers. I didn't touch anything, it just went out. I turned things on & off, switched receiver channels, etc, but then the sound just came back on it's own. Then it went out again. At first i thought the rear speakers were bad, but now I'm thinking I might need a new receiver if the sound channel has gone bad. Oh, and I did try switching channels to the one I use with my XBox and there's no sound there either. Can someone suggest what I should do ? Thanks.

Guess I'll reply to myself. Did some Googling only to find that this is a known issue with Onkyo. New receiver time.

Before spending for new, check the cables. They often break at connectors, so wiggle the cable at each.

Yeah, crackling sounds are classic signs of a weak connection, especially where there is vibration or corrosion.

Thanks for the replies. As it turns out, the Onkyo NR609 has a known flaw in that the HDMI chip burns out. The sound is now totally gone on all channels and since it's 5 1/2 years old it's out of warranty. I'm going to check out new receivers today.

I'm suprised your Onkyo lasted that long! Mine broke after owning it for 1.5 yrs. I was fortunate to accidently purchased a third party protection and got all money back. I don't trust Onkyo brand anymore unless I go with their higher end brand, Integra. I rather go with either Marantz, Denon, or Yamaha.

If you don't mind purchasing refurbhished, this is a good place to find some decent deal. I got my refurbished Marantz here and its still going strong 8 years or so now.
