    On my preamp, the right channel tends to be intermittent and needs a nudge everyonce in a while to kick in.
    I have tried other quality cables, cleaning, pro-gold.....all with the same results.
    It's not a big enough pain to take in to a service center unless something else goes wrong.

    Anyone else have any ideas or options?
    I don't mind opening the case up but leave that as the last option.
    Set-Up
    Pramp: Sony TAE 9000ES
    6 channel Pramp: Sony TAP 9000ES
    Amp - (2) Sony TAN 9000ES in 2 BTL + 1 Mode
    Speakers KEF Q series
    Interconnects: I believe it's a Kimber cable but I have so many it's hard to remember


    Many Thanks!

    If this is an old-school pre-amp with a regular analog volume control, then the problem is probably noting more than a dirty potentiometer. Pop the cover and see of there is a tiny hole somewhere in the case of the volume control. If so, shoot it with some tuner cleaner (available at Radio Shack), turn the knob back and forth full-travel a few times and that should take care of it.

    No, it's completely digital; it even takes analog inputs and converts them into digital
