I have a Denon 1803, Energy Veritas 2.1 speakers all around, and a JVC DVD player (can't remember the model).

Sometimes when I listen to music (2-channel), the sound from the right front is very faint. Usually, I stop the CD and restart it and the problem is solved. Sometimes I have to repeat the process. It's not a dropout (if I understand what that is), as it's only in one speaker.

Is this more likely to be a speaker, receiver, or source problem? Any help is apprecited.

It is most likely your source if that is the only time it happens. Switch your speaker wire and see if it moves to the other speaker. Then do the same with the interconnects. If that doesn't show one of those to be at fault and it only then borrow someones CD or DVD to see if that eliminates it.

Thanks for the reply. It happens with more than one CD, and I never noticed it with DVDs. I'll definitely try the speaker wire, though.

Dennis,
As Chris said it seems to me also that its very likely a problem of your player.. can you try switching the player and see if you still face the problem?

Another thing to eliminate simply is the speaker itself by swapping the R & L ones. If it is only one speaker, it could just have something loose in it and the problem will follow the speaker. You will at least know it isn't the speaker.

I'd check the wiring for that particular speaker too, it could be a loose or shorted wire.

By source that generally means tv/CD player/DVD player/radio. A CD or DVD would be media.

And yes swapping speakers is another good thing to check.

Thanks for the responses, guys. I finally got a chance to look at this, and it's definitely the speaker. They're still under warranty, but I think I'm going to have to send it to Buffalo to get service. I could try to do it myself, but I'm incompetent. Thanks again!
