Left channel getting signal before the right ?
« on: June 29, 2022, 08:24:41 AM »
Hi Bottleheads
This is my first post here so hope I'm obeying the rules!!!

I put theocracy together on the weekend. Everything went smoothly and all tested within acceptable limits.

Loving the sound and currently breaking in 650's and a couple of tubes.

My question: when I turn the volume to extremely low level (just before off) I notice that I pretty much only get signal in the left channel.
When I turn up the volume the right channel kicks in and as far as I can tell it seems to be at the same volume as the left so i don't really have an issue.

I did want to ask ya'll if this is normal or if you think I need to look into it?

Thanks

That can be normal with carbon potentiometers.  Crack FAQ #3 has a solution for this issue if this happens to be a reasonable listening level in your system.

Thanks Paul this is great!!!

It doesn't really bother me so Its good to have you reassure me everything is working a it should.

Maybe I will look into that solution if i feel the need to tinker.

Seems to be a common activity these days.
