Hi All,
As of this morning at power on, the left channel on one of my SB3s is dead.
What I have attempted so far to no avail:
- reversed output connections, confirms one channel dead
- changed inputs on amp from Aux 1 to Aux 2, no luck (CD player and FM radio work OK, so it's not the amp)
- did a firmware update
Is the last resort a call to SD?
Thanks for your thoughts

In the very rare event I get audio glitches, I reset Xilinx: unplug power, press and hold "1" while replugging power.

Unfortunately though, I've never had a glitch so specific. You could have had a hardware failure, in which case you'll have to contact support.

Thanks Mark.
Did that, but no luck.
Actually I found since I posted my query that when pushing the volume real high I can faintly hear the channel I thought was completely missing. I got to try with another cable to make sure it's not the cable, but it's 5-m long (the SB is on my desk for legibility and the system elsewhere in my office) and I have no spares that long. I'll also do a swap with the other SB to lift any doubt.
