I am a music lover and musician but I'm not smart about electronics - I just know what sounds good to my ears.
I used to have Alison Speakers I drove with an M400 and now I have B&W speakers and a Carver TFM-25. Well I noticed the front right speaker was making very little sound, so I went into my Dennon AV-setup and had to crank up the right speaker level to balance the sound but the result sounds crappy. (I have the Carver volume all the way up and use the Denon as a pre-amp to the Carver which drives the front speakers B&W 802 Matrix). This has worked out fine, particularly as the Denon as a "pure direct" mode which bypasses most of the circuitry of the Denon.
I hope that made sense.
My question is this - I have no idea what to do about this:
1) Are there some simple tests I can perform myself to determine the issue (or confirm there is one)?
2) Should I send this off somewhere for repair - is it worth it? Should I just look for a replacement? If so, should I go to e-Bay (or maybe the trade forum here) and get another TFM-25.
Thanks in advance for any advice you might have to offer.
