Sorry if that title comes across as misleading as I wasn’t sure how to word in the subject box. 😕

I have a question regarding a difference in instrument placing in headphone and speaker listening. For example when listening to The Who’s Baba O'Riley after approx 30 seconds the piano on my headphones come in on the left side but when listening on my speakers it comes through on the right speaker. Have I set something up wrong ?

I followed instructions on the 218 which states to connect right speaker to bottom SpeakerLink output.

maybe someone could chip in with some advice 😊

Cheers Danny

Just listened to three versions, two via TIDAL and one my own ripped CD via Sooloos.

That piano is on the left in all cases...

Hi,

Are you wearing the headphones the wrong way round? wink

From your description it does seem that the L/R channels are switched somewhere.

I’d recommend playing a channel identity test track ... to determine if it’s the speakers or the headphones that are amiss.

If it is the speakers double check that the left is configured as left (and right for right).

Regards,
Carl

Hi

Definitely not wearing the headphones the wrong way round (unless I am finally losing it)

Just listened to Dire Straits Private Investigations and again instruments I’m used to coming through on the left side are on the right speaker 😧

Sounds like I need to check the speaker configuration

When sitting in my listening chair the speaker to my right is set to L/C.

There’s your issue...

The speaker to the right should be ... wait for it ... configured to be the right speaker (and the left as left).

If your not sure how to change refer the DSP user guide.

Carl

Cant believe I’ve had it set this way for nearly 1 year

I trust you’re good now, just have to retrain your brain to which side the instruments are placed.
