sony STR-DG600 receiver - ticking noise problem

I received a new Sony STR-DG600 for my birthday and it seems like a great
receiver but I'm getting a ticking noise from the speakers on all inputs and
on front and surround speakers. I've tried unhooking everything
systematically from the rear to troubleshoot but no dice. I also tried
hooking up a speaker to the B input to check that but still heard it. I do
have a powered sub where the signal goes from receiver to the sub on regular
speaker wires and then to the speakers but I bypassed that when hooking to
speaker B inputs, still heard the noise.

This is my 2nd unit, took first back for exchange b/c of this problem. Same
problem although the noise is less noticeable but definitely still there. I
have a Sony HDTV and would like to listen in great new surround on this
receiver but am at my wit's end. My old Yamaha had the same exact setup and
had no problem. Any suggestions or similar problems?
Thanks,
Drew

Drew,

I was wondering if you have tried connecting your system to a power
conditioning unit. If not, you should give it a try I have found that
when you clean up the power it will stop many noise issues.
Thanks,
Ken

With headphones, too?
