    DIY Repair and Maintenance
    Recently, for no particular reason, the left channel on my amp has stopped working. I've checked the speaker cable and the speaker and these are working fine. It a complete mystery and I was hoping some could enlighten me as to why this is happened.

  3. How do I repair static in the left channel? :(

    Hey guys, I've had my Onkyo receiver for a few days now, and just tonight I'm getting static out of the left speaker only. Now, I did some research before posting this. I checked my connections, everything's good there. I then ran the speaker wire all the way out (taut) so it wasn't touching any...

    Remedy Moves Alan Wake to Multiplatform, but PS3 is Left Unsupported Typically, the PlayStation 3 holds its own when it comes to exclusives, but there was one game that came out in 2010 which would have fit perfectly on the console but never made it: Alan Wake. It was just announced that...
  5. no left channel withou direct mode

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Looking for suggestions. I have a marantz Sr 8000 that I have really enjoyed over the years. Unfortunately, I can only get the left channel to play in source direct mode when using the RCA in puts. The 5.1 works great with optical inputs. But, cd, tape, anything RCA (even front aux inputs)...
  6. Rotel RX-975 Left channel going out?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Hey guys, so lately my left channel has been not working but usually I can turn it off then back on or standby it and unstandby it and it would be ok. Well today it is not working almost entirely. Is there a likely component that is going bad for this to be happening?
  7. Audyssey failing at left rear surround

    Audio Processing
    I've run a few calibration cycles and each one stops as soon as it tries to test the left rear surround. When listening to music in the all channel stereo mode and when using internal pink noise, that channel sounds fine and is properly trimmed. All of the other channels (except for left...

  10. Are the left and right filter banks independent?

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Since , I dont use the left and right filter sets simultaneously, would it be possible to use the left bank for one filter set and the right bank for another filter set thereby effectively doubling the number of filter sets available for use? For example I can store a filter set without house...

  16. .2 system: one sub for left, right - 2 sub for LFE

    System Setup and Connection
    OK, so I have two subs that I am running in my 7.2 setup. Stereo material always sounds like it's lacking in bass, so am I correct in thinking that i can have one of my basses handling left-right channels and the other handling LFE exclusively? Correct me if I'm wrong - but couldn't I run...
  17. solid state amp left on all the time

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Hello fellow shacksters, My question is, should I leave my solid state amps on all the time or should I power them off when not in use? I have asked SVS and B&K, SVS said it didn't really matter that turning the amp off and on is not going to extend the life of the amp. B&K said pretty much...
