I’ve had my DS for about a month and am generally very pleased. Thanks! However, I’m baffled by the balance control, though it may just be some ignorance on my part.
I keep the overall volume output on my DS at 65, which works well with my amps and other sources. That’s fine. My problem is that I like to adjust the balance control to “square up” some recordings. When I press the left arrow on the remote, presumably to increase left channel volume, the overall volume seems to increase, not just the left channel. When I press the right arrow nothing seems to happen. This is with FW version 5407. The numbers adjust on the DS screen as I would expect - left or right increases that channel’s setting number.
With FW 6115, I got the same result with the left channel increase. But, the few times I tried to increase the right channel the sound seemed to stay at the same volume but with a strange hollow sound. I switched back to 5407 with the same results described above.
Not sure what to do at this point.
