Default Cyrus L,R balance

Hi,

Apart from the L, R separation balance problem, I realise another problem. When I plug in the phono input, either MM or MC, the L channel sounds louder and more compact, the right channel is slightly softer and sound thin ( less bass). I have tried removing all the 3 ICs from the left channel and place them on the right channel and vice versa, but the left channel still is louder than the right. I have checked all the resistors and caps on both the preamps and they are all OK. When I plug in the AUX, CD, VIDEO inputs, there is no problem, both channels sound equal. What can be the problem? Please help.

Thanks


Carlosraj

If this is a Cyrus 1/2 amplifier, there are some capacitors which are red-brown in colour with "ROE" written on them. These capacitors fail badly with age, and are in the signal path. Replace them and see if the problem goes away.
