So I'm listening to an SACD last night, and it seems to me like the left channel is WAY louder than the right. Funny, never noticed that this song was mastered like that, so I throw in another SACD - same thing.
So then I set up my player (a Pioneer 578) to read the CD portion of the SACD, so that I can use the digital signal and compare. Sure enough, sounds great via digital, and lopsided via the 6ch analogues.
So I spent the next hour convincing myself that it is NOT the cables (basically by switching back and forth), and it's not the DVD player because it always followed that channel not matter how I wired it up. Then I hooked just the L and R to the CD input (rather than the "6 ch direct") and that ALSO works fine.
So it seems like the only explanation is that it's the front right input of my 6ch input that's off somehow. Has anyone ever heard of this kind of thing happening before? Any suggestions aside from trying to get it serviced (ie things to look for)?
I'm majorly bummed here.
