Clicking noises inside my Marantz AV Amp


Active Member

I've had a Marantz NR1601 since August last year and its been fine.

Recently it has been making clicking noises that seem to be happening at after about 10-15 minutes. After a period of time it will just make a click, like a relay switching. Thing is the amp is still working fine. After about another 20 minutes it will make another click and the amp is still working fine still.

I really don't know if its anything to worry about the it definitely wasnt making this sound a month or two ago.

The amp is only driving a pair of Monitor Audio BR2's in bi-amp mode and its barely warm above the grills.

I'm just worried that the amp may be about to go :(

Is it worth contacting Marantz?
