Oh, forgot to add that all interconnect connections are solid. They are also only a year or two old.

jfmerkThis is not a fix for your problem, but I see a potential big one switching everything on at once.
As your Odyssey amps could be damaged by switch on thumps from anything before it.
Amps should be the last thing turned on, and the first thing turned off. This may save the amps and speakers.
Thanks all for the comments and ideas!
I wasn't very clear on "how" everything is switched on. The programmable outlet just turns on the Panamax power center which has 10 outlets. 2 of which are high current outlets with adjustable ON delays. My amp uses this outlet, set to a 30 second delay and is the last component to receive power and the first to be turned off.
I'll just keep monitoring the no sound symptoms and wait for them to tell a clearer story. Thanks again.

ON: Amps take 30sec to come on after everything else is on.?
OFF: Everything else gets turned off 30sec after the amp gets turns off
This does sound like a classic relay problem. My guess is that there is are relays for the inputs and then relay that disconnects the output while the input is being switched to prevent a thump. It is the output relay that is bad. You need to send the DAC in for service or buy another one. The little Benchmark is extraordinary!
