No demon amp centre speaker


Standard Member
I have had my denon acr-2312 set up for quite a while now with my Xbox audio coming to it via optical cable. I have recently been getting a problem where the audio stops coming from the centre speaker. I have just put Netflix on and it plays correctly through the centre speaker for about 10 seconds before turning off when a small clicking noise happens, similar to the noise it makes when you mute the audio. Any suggestions?

Thank you.


Sounds like something in the amplifier stage. Probably a solder joint that is effected by heat and doesn't connect once warmed up. Sometimes it's a dry solder and breaks the connection. Could be an easy fix. You could take the top of yourself and have a look if confident or take it to a repairer. It's then that you have to look at if it would be financially viable to do so.

If you want to keep the amp you could always run as a 4.1. Easy to reconfigure.
