Firstly, I'd like to preface my call for help with noting that I am have intermediate to advanced knowledge of AVRs. I've performed several troubleshooting steps (which I will describe in detail) to arrive at the following conclusion: I believe there is something wrong with the DSP circuits on my unit.That's what I put in the form. There's not much more to add. Let me know if there are any clarification points I should make. Thanks in advance!
Symptom: Front right channel failing.
My first step in attempting to diagnose the issue was to turn on the test tone and run it through each channel. The white noise test tone worked flawlessly on each channel with appropriate volume.
My second step was to plug in headphones to see if it was something with the THX mode I was using or surround processing in general. The result was inconclusive, because I wasn't sure if my ears were biased. The right channel seemed fade, but I wasn't positive.
My third step was to play different sources and sound modes. I settled on the THX certification app for my iPhone since I couldn't locate my calibration disc. I had my phone - through a lightning to HDMI adapter - send test sounds to individual channels. Initially, I was able to hear the front right, but after switching sound modes on the receiver a few times (THX to Pure Audio and back) I was finally able to reproduce the issue consistently. Front right channel would not produce any sound when prompted.
I was glad to have my suspicions confirmed, but also disappointed. Please let me know how to proceed.
