Hello,


I've got an STR-DE825 Sony Stereo Receiver that I use primarily for my personal stereo system. I have the A speakers hooked up to a pair of Boston speakers (about 6'' drivers).


I noticed that the balance between right and left always seems to favour the right side. This is when the balance knob is dead center, of course. When i move it to the left to balance out the sound, I hear a decrease in volume and even though I turn the volume up to compensate I get more noise and less bass.


I'm using identical speaker cables and the receiver still favours the right side while using just the headphones.


Any suggestions as to how I could fix it?

maybe try adjusting the speaker levels? I'd be surprised if that impacted headphones, but then again stranger things have happened.

Swap the speakers to see if the problem follows the left side speaker.

I tried moving the speakers and It is definitely not the left speaker.


Like I said, the right side is louder even with the speakers off and listening to it with headphones.

Also, the rear speakers are considerably lower in volume than the fronts. I've tried hooking the speakings I have up front to the rear speaker spots and i got drastically reduced volume. Any ideas?
