Pray tell, what is a 'DI'?

Can you do some simple measurements, like DC supply voltage, DC at the speaker output? Compared with the 'good' channel. If you say the sound is unclean, what exactly do you mean?

There may be a short circuit and the current limiters are activated (TR10/11). Or, possibly a bad cap in feedback loop.

If there is definitely no short circuit on the output, you could temporarily remove TR10/11 from circuit (lift one leg of D10/11) and see if this helps. (These things would be better checked on a test bench, but if you must connect a speaker for testing, use one you won't might destroying.)

If there is a short circuit at the ouput and TR10/11 are activated, the heatsink for the outptu devices should get rather warm soon after powering up the unit. But if the devices are misbehaving, they can create a distorted output.
