CJ Classic Preamp

1 to 2 sec. after the music source commences, there is an audible click from the right speaker and the left speaker then plays. Is this a normal condition? Since I use this system irregularly, I can't say with certainty that this is a new condition.

The Classics do use a mute relay that mutes the outputs for 45 seconds after you turn it on..  You can hear it within the unit, should never hear a click through the speakers.   Did you reseat the tubes (tube if its a Classic 2) or try new ones?   You should give Jeff a call at CJ, they've always been helpful to me in the past.
Thanks for your suggestions. I'll do that. Happy Easter.
