  1. I've often thought that but the room is unchanged as a variable during this event.
  2. Thanks all. Appreciate the comments. I will drop the idea that it was the cable length and leave it as a mystery. The cable break in comment was about SQ only (comparing channels) and not a part of the problem. Nice having the balance knob centralised again, after 5 years😀
  3. Thanks for the suggestion. The cable is Furutech Alpha S-14. There have been a couple of amps during this period both requiring the same balance off-set so I can rule that out. I can't really test the poor connection hypothesis because I have switched over the connectors from the 1m length to the new 3m length so that original connection has been altered/lost. BTW this incident has consolidated for me that (this) cable with newly installed connectors does indeed require breaking in before sounding good/great.
  4. In true “Get Better Sound” style, I have my electronics on the LHS. As a result I have been running uneven lengths of speaker cable (1m Vs 4.5m) I guess to save money on cable thinking it wouldn’t make much difference. My balance knob sits between 1 o’clock and 2 o’clock for central imaging depending on the recording but I never really knew why. Due to the purchase of a top loading cd player, I had to move my electronics around which meant my 1m length was no longer long enough – so I replaced it with a 3m length of the same cable. Suddenly (lo and behold) the balance knob had to be moved to the central position. So uneven cable length was affecting balance. However only my existing cable type as I used another 3m of a different cable (mismatched) in the interim (4 weeks) and the balance remained unchanged at between 1 o’clock and 2 o’clock. So there you go.
