    Hi, welcome to AR.

    is the clicking sound coming from the receiver itselves? or through the speakers?

    if it's only in the receiver, it's normal, just the relais switching on & off...

    Keep them spinning,

    Many recievers have a function that holds power from the speakers until it has been stabilized so you don't get a big "thump" as the amp powers up. When the speakers are able to be powered by a stable level the click will happen. This could be what you are hearing.
