View Full Version : channel missing

2005-09-23, 14:28
Ok here is a wierd one.

I went to listen to some music on the SB tonight and noticed only one channel was working (right one if that is relevant), so assumed it was a loose connection to the amp.

Checked all cables and they seemed ok, played a cd and it worked fine both channels. So I swapped the leads over from the SB with some spares and still only one channel worked. So I changed the leads from the SB to the CD inputs on the amp; still only one channel worked.

I have three sets of speakers connected through a switch to my amp and all three sets only had sound coming out of the right hand speaker. I checked this very thoroughly and know that it was not my imagination.

I then selected an Internet radio station (Davidbyrne) and both channels worked!

I then changed the leads back to the original SB inputs on the amp, played an album on the SB and it worked on both channels.

Is this a bug or has someone doped my wine?

I really, really, hope someone else has had an experience like this or it means I need to go and see the head-doctor on Monday morning.

Never heard of this, but don't go for the head exam just yet.

What format were the files that only played on one channel?

They were AACs.

I am going to try and replicate this now.

I've told the shrink to make it a provisional booking...

Well I failed to replicate the missing channel phenomenon, so I've confirmed the appointment with the shrink.

Sean - please feel free to delete this thread if you want.
