Onkyo 9030 amp, faulty or a characteristic?
just set up my dads new budjet hifi seperates system, as he is housebound now and likes his music,
the heart of the system is the rather good sounding Onkyo 9030 amp
But.....when turning the volume knob there is a slight 'crackle' or a clicking sound, its not really like a dust in the pot but more of an electrical sounding clicking, only noticable on certain music usually quiet passages, but the weird thing is its only if the volume is turned quickly , if it is turned slow its not a problem and cant be heard !
and another issue is when I turn the balance control all the way to the left there is still a small output of music from the right, and vive versa the other way, Have I got a lemon, should this go back to richers ? or is this normal for this amp, anyone any experience, apart from that the music performance is very good
