Don't destroy the FET if you can manage it... just off the cuff guess.

The giveaway is that it works (well sorta) with power off...

Really ? You don't think it could be because there is still power left in the psu ?

Any ideas what I should check for?

Another suspect could be the 100K resistors connected from the input and output points to the ground. I would check whether all four (per chanhhel) are of the same value.

- Try to make the 124R resistance variable. So you can adjust the gain and match both channels (Min R value=max gain)
- Check the transconductance of your mosfets : Measure the Vgs of each mosfet @ two different currents using current sources (10 & 20 mA for example) Transconductance is given by Delta(I)/Delta(Vgs).The gain of the BLS depends on the 124R, the Drain resistors and the transconductance...

The values of all the resisters were checked and they are correct. I also changed the Fets, and the imbalance still remains.

I just got a topend B&K DMM that has a capacitance function. All the 10uf caps measure to about 10.5uf.... except one on the left channel -(neg) phase, I get no reading at all.

I'm going to order a new 10uf cap, and I bet I'll be in good shape.

Select the 750 Ohm resistors (they estabilish the point of work).
Another way is to control the cap on the output, are you sure that they work well ?
