I have the same units.
The click or clicks you hear are the speaker and main power relays being energized. Thatís a good thing. The bad thing is that they should energize within 5 to 10 seconds. After equalization. Check the low current power supplies that are behind the front cover and on the left. I bet youíll find a few of the cap sitting in their own cap poop. It happens with age. Youíll need to check the two Drive amp cards also, bet youíll find a few leakers there also. Point is you really need to check the complete amp and preamp.
Once you have replaced the leaky caps you'll find inside, realign the units. The two main Electrolytic types you'll find in the amp are labeled as "SE" and "SL" . The "SE" are ELNA standard caps. The "SL" are ELNA Slow Leak caps. Make sure you replace the caps with the same type.
If you donít want to replace the caps you will still need to align the amp. It wonít help too much with the relay time delay but it should allow your units to last a bit longer before they die.
