That almost sounds like they are out of phase. Maybe check to be sure the interconnects are wired correctly. They might have been reversed internally when they were put together.

Rrog is correct that image dispersion along the vertical axis is sensitive to high frequency information. In fact see my posts dated 5-3-13 in this thread.
However, based on the photos in your system description it appears that you are probably referring to a short length of XLR interconnect used between the DAC and the integrated amplifier. If so, I find it hard to believe that it would have such profound effects on vertical image dispersion. Therefore I suspect that Mofi's theory is correct.
Perhaps one of the two XLR cables has pin 2 at one end connected to pin 3 at the other end, and vice versa, which would put the two channels out of phase with each other, instead of having pin 2 connected to pin 2, and pin 3 connected to pin 3. You can check that with a multimeter.
Tough question. It will be difficult, everyone is spoiled from the Carol years, 9-3 is now bad!!!! I would like to see the program off sanctions before I judge his performance! His neck is definitely in the yoke !!!!!
I'm glad a quality coach is in Westwood now, I enjoy a good rivalry win or, shudder, lose !!!!!!!
BTW what are your speakers resting on?
