Question Pioneer VSX 534 Occasional clicking

Hey guys

A few months ago I bought a Pioneer VSX 534 receiver. I'm really pleased with it and it's a nice small upgrade from my older amp. Despite only having 5.1 channels the Atmos is still very impressive and theirs plenty of extra features compared to my older amp.

One thing I've noticed though is that occasionally it randomly clicks. I know it's normal for them to click when changing inputs and powering on etc but this is while watching a film or playing a game. Normally once or twice within a few hours. When it clicks the speakers aren't affected in any way at all.

Can anybody advise if I have need to worry or is the odd click acceptable in these models?

Thanks in advance :thumbsup:

Hi

Main transformer has low (28V) and high (55V) voltage output windings. When you watch films at certain low volume, main uCom switches (relay click) amplifier module to lower voltage to save energy and reduce temperature.

Hi

Thanks so much for the reply. I've only got a small room and very sensitive hearing so I tend to listen on low volumes, normally around the -24/28 mark.

So is the clicking occasionally nothing to worry about then? I haven't noticed it once today.

Yes, don't worry about it. My Onkyo does the same thing.

Thanks, I really appreciate that so I can rest easy. I like my tech but I'm nowhere near as savvy as some of you guys on here.
