As I was watching a movie there was crackling noise at certain high volume dialogue. I swapped out the center Motion 30 with my Motion 40 left channel and same thing. Does that mean my receiver is damaged? Running everything through Marantz SR5012.

Did you try other sources for the sound? I've been on certain news stations where it sounds like there is a bad microphone. Sometimes a channel has other problems.

Just one idea of another cause other than the receiver.

Wow, was just looking at Marantz and I see most of their receivers are sold out now. Probably covid-19 related.

I was watching a blu ray movies through my Xbox Series X, then tried the same scene in my Playstation 5. Same thing happened twice. Then I was hoping it was the movie itself, but last night I noticed the crackling sound as I was playing an Xbox game.

yup all sold out for now. Also, big problem with new receivers and running 4k@120Hz. I think I'm going to have to wait until 2021 models.
