Firstly, am I posted this in the right board? Because it's speaker-related, but they're computer speakers as opposed to home theater speakers. So if this should be in the PC-related board instead, let me know. Thanks. Anyways, on to my trouble: I finally picked up the Logitech Z-560's (I'm definitely glad I chose them over the 640's since they just sound so great for their price). There's one problem, though, that I'm hoping isn't a defect or anything. Because they have apparently been discontinued, they've become extremely hard to find, so when I finally found them for $145 CDN (about $110 US), I picked them up immediately, despite the box not being in great shape (although I was assured they were brand new). Anyways, while the four speakers appear to be new, some of the speaker wire was a bit bent at the tips, leading me to believe that they've been used. Also, a small section of the vertical metal pieces at the back of the woofer (vents?) is a bit bent. And finally, the box didn't include any owner's manual (or mini wrench that I heard was included to adjust the speaker stands). All that is no big deal as it doesn't effect anything, but one thing that I am worried about is the fact that the left channel seems to be a bit louder than the right one. There's no L/R balance knob and winamp is set to centre, yet the front left channel seems to give off a bit more sound than the right. I even tried switching the L and R speakers, and the left was still louder, meaning speakers themselves aren't defective. And not only that, but even when I plug headphones into the headphone jack in the contol unit, the left seems a bit louder than the right, once again leading me to believe that it's not the speakers themselves. This is especially noticeable at low volume levels (not so much when things are louder). If I keep the volume at low levels, pretty much no sound comes out of the right. I have to cross the certain threshold for the right channel to "turn on". And even when it does, the left still sounds a bit louder (mainly the forward sounds like lead vocals, lead guitar etc...) I'm using a pretty awful sound card (Creative Sound Blaster PCI) if that matters. I'll be getting a new PC with an Audigy 2 soon, though, so I'm hoping that I'll notice some sort of improvement). So, any idea what the problem could be? I really appreciate it.
