Question about Kenwood VR-6050 Receiver
Frequently my receiver makes loud cracking or popping noises through the speakers (all 5 at differing times) when connected to a dolby digital device - both cable box and blue ray player in both coax and fiber optic cables have been tested. All the speakers are connected properly and all the power cords are also connected properly. This does not happen when I'm listening to a non dolby digital or dts signal. Any help? I can't seem to find a solution or reason that this is happening.

If you would like to use high definition audio decoding, connect the HDMI from the blu ray player to the receiver. If that it not an option for you due to lack of equipment such as an additional HDMI cable to go from the receiver to the television for the video portion of the signal, then connect your optical cable again. After the optical cable is connected, make sure the Dolby Digital decoding is enabled on the receiver, and that the media you are playing also has a version of 5.1 surround sound. Then, enter the setup menu of the player (which I suspect this is actually where the problem might reside in your case) and make sure that Dolby Digital and DTS are not set to "downmix." Dolby Digital should be set to output Dolby Digital and so on and so forth...hope this helped.
