Default Aleph 3 power consumption

Hi,

I noticed on the consumption meter that the power consumption of Aleph 3 is about half of the usual value. The sound is a bit distorted. When I measured the value across the eight big transistors in power supply with voltmeter i get different values on each of the heatsinks and different from the values that is marked on them. Dont know what could be the problem.

Thank you for your response.

When Aleph 3 is connected into power consuption meter, turned on, power consumption is about 110 watts, previously when i powered it on consumption was about 250 watts. Also i noticed that one half of the heatsinks heat up another not, so now I found out that maybe problem is in one channel functional and another not.
