SA-8800 Pops Thru Speakers
I have a Pioneer SA-8800 amplifier that I get popping sounds through the speakers. I only use the unit a few times a year, and a while ago I removed the cover and blew off the insides - which helped, but I still get the sounds.
It happens most often when I initially power it up, then goes quiet for as much as an hour or so after which I'll get a couple pops, sometimes a brief crackling sound, and then nothing for another hour more.
I figure I'll probably need to take it in for repair, but just would like to know more about it.
Any ideas or suggestions?
