1pg: In your office you have the full set of speakers, yes? L-R, front-back, and maybe center? But in the other rooms you probably only have two? Maybe the amp is sending the sound based on your configuration (your office), and also to the other rooms that don't have all those speakers. So the sound never gets to the speakers that don't exist, and you hear it as missing sound, and sound fading in and out.

Yes, five speakers in my office, plus the sub. The Surround Sound amp has a two (well, several) outlets - presumably to make stereo tape recordings. I run from that outlet to the Pioneer. What a rat's nest of wires back there! Six pieces of electronics, plus the TV box. It's been several years since I used the Tape deck or the DVD player, but the phono and CD player are used from time to time. TV input is used every day.

A friend had a rather more elaborate setup than mine. He put it all in a large bookcase. After seeing his setup, I decided to hide mine in a closet. (He had wires all over the place!) Reduced accessibility is one of the prices I had to pay. He (They, actually, a couple) got me into using Denon and M&K instead of Bose equipment. Costs a bit more, but I am satisfied. Except for the 15,000 separate pieces of equipment (give or take) while the Bose has only a few. (He was the anesthesiologist at a local hospital, so he was well-heeled.)
