    Hi all,

    Got myself an 1905 today and so far so good.

    Thing is, we have never had a reciever before, we only ever had an all in one Home theatre system and that kinda did it all for you, if you see what I mean.

    I'm still discovering things but there is this one thing that bothers me slightly, there is a 'click' (not overly loud ) as it switches between various functions, is this NORMAL or something I should be worried about?

    It's not coming from the speakers but from the unit itself.


    While I'm here can anyone suggest some nice speakers that will be ok for a small 15x13 room, wont annoy the neighbours and will be relatively cheap yet give a nice sound for a Sammy HD-850 DVD

    We didn't get this Denon for noise levels, just the nice surround sound :)


    Many thanks if you made it this far.

    It's normal. It's the muting circuits cutting in and out. :)

    Ahh, thanks for that.

    It's a kinda 'mechanical' click btw, just to be clear :thumbsup:

    I know it has been almost half a year, but for the sake of completeness, the mechanical noise is made by relays, as far as I know. It is just a electromagnetic-mechanical (electromechanical?) device... The switching signal goes through a solenoid (a wire with lots of loops) that creates a magnetic field (in one of the two positions, on or off). This field attracts a small metallic plate that actually closes or opens the circuit. A "wiki-explanation" will be much better than this, I guess... I am not an English native speaker...
    Regards,
