    Hello,

    I have an old Sony DB825 receiver (only does dolby digital), and when I run the test tones, the right speaker is a lot louder than the left speaker. There is no balance option, so I can't even them out. Before I start moving speakers around (to see if the speaker is bad), do receivers eventually go bad? I know that they will eventually fail, but are there signs that a reciever is going bad? I don't know much about speakers, but I would not think that 2 of the exact speakers could have a large volume difference (I take very good care of my speakers, and have never had the sound too loud).

    I just ordered a new DA4ES, so i will know for sure if it is my receiver..

    First thing I'd do is switch the speakers (position and wiring) and see if you notice the same thing. If it is duplicated it is likely the receiver.
