Connectivity Problems
stereo5, that makes sense but I just brought it home from my tech.  
Connectivity Problems
roberjerman, I have no issue with the left channel. It wouldn’t be the battery or power supply. What could be the issue with the right channel? 
Connectivity Problems
I forgot to add;What’s very odd is that whenever I play the Ayre Acoustics ‘Irrational but Efficacious’ enhancement and test cd, the problems get worse.For example, I could have a stretch where the signal seems to have stabilized and then if I pla...
