Hi All,

I recently purchased Energy Take Classic 5.1 from AvenueSound. Yesterday I received the package and I connected with my AVR Marantz-5008. As soon as I turned on I noticed a crackling sound from the center spkr (even at low volume). I tried reversing the polarity and had no success. I attached other spr with center source, it was working fine. I attached center spkr in the rear channel I got same issue.

What could be the reason? Is it manufacturing defect? I am a bit shocked and feeling cheated having invested ~50K in a spkr whose credibility is now unknown.

Need your expertise please!

Yes,
It's day 1 only. So complete warranty is there. As of now Avenue Sound (Ashish) is very supportive and is calling back the center spkr. He is also in the interim sending a substitute one.

However I am worried that this can happen anytime then. I hope it is not a AVR Spkr mismatch issue.

I think you are worrying too much here, it is a defective CC which is covered under warranty.
As you have swapped the speakers and tested working fine, then you don't need to worry once you get an replacement.

I second that.. Ashish is very helpful. infact he sent me a second hand CC in the interim and collected the new defective CC for further investigation. All couriered via Fedex and borne by him. Hats off.

Just that I am surprised how a new piece can end up being defunct.
