Denon Dht 500sd



Have DENON DHT 500SD had it set up and running for about 4 weeks. I have suddenly got crackling from one of the rear speakers.
Has anyone else had same problem.

I have eliminated speaker or lead fault.

Is the unit/connection defective or is their a simple remedy.

The speakers are not affected by any AC source.

Can you swap the rear speakers over? If the crackling stays on that channel it would point to a problem with the amp possibly. If it goes with the speaker it would mean the speaker itself has a problem.

i have a problem similar with mine. i get cracking from all speakers but only when the amp is in analog mode, as soon as i put a dvd in and it switches to a digital input the sound is perfect? not sure what the problem is with the amp but ive had it over 2 years now and its out of warrenty :mad:
