    My Panasonic home theater system pretty much works great. However, quite
    frequently the sound is interupted by a popping static sound. Does anyone
    know how to help? Any advice would be appreciated.
  2. There are many audio-related newsgroups, to which this question would be
    much better suited. This particular newsgroup is mainly concerned with
    electronics test equipment, as you can see if you read a few of the
    postings, which is never a bad idea before posting to a group.

    That said: one possibility is that it is caused by a spike on your power
    line. If your hifi is on the same circuit as something with a motor in it -
    for instance, a refrigerator or air conditioner - then whenever that motor
    turns on or off, there will be a short voltage spike.

    You may be able to get relief by using a surge arrestor or an isolation
    transformer; or by shifting the system or the offending appliance to a
    different electric outlet.
