Receiver doesn't play sound until it's warmed up 5 - 10 minutes

Unfortunately, your question has too many variables. Try this. Unplug the unit. Plug it back in. When you first push the power button, you should immediately hear one mechanical click from the unit, followed by a second click with 5-10 seconds. If you don't hear the second click, the unit may have a condition known as DC Offset. It would be unusual to have DC Offset only within the first 5-10 minutes. It's possible that power supply has an issue where both the positive and negative voltages are not coming up at the same time.

You unit has a condition known as DC Offset, which displays as protect. This offset condition is presented to the microprocessor IC(a computer within your Sony). This IC will not let you turn the unit back on until the problem is corrected. If you are interested in repairing your Sony, please visit my website at Thank you.

The speaker will cut-out after it has been playing a while. It will click-off, like it is going into a power-save mode, then back on for a few seconds or minutes...then back off again.

Sounds like you have an heat sensitive semi-conductor that might be connected to a relay (the clicking thing). As it warms up it acts up!
You can pin it down by spraying suspected parts (while under power and when it acts up) with Servisol Freezer Spray. Only spray one part at a time. The faulty part will return to normal, till it warms up again, or you force it to by touching it with a soldering iron.
If nothing happens to the part you spray, it's working and test the next. Don't bother to spray non semiconductor parts.
