I have had my SN3 for a few weeks now with my NDX2 and Neat SX1 speakers. The difference between the same system with SN2 is a great improvement. The timing and transients sound better.
One thing that I have noticed is that at very low volumes, perhaps <5 on a volume scale of 1 to 100 is that the right hand channel is louder than the left. Once the volume gets above ‘5’ or so, the sound evens out and normal channel balance is resumed.
Obviously most listening is done where the balance is in normal (10+) range so it is not a problem. However, is this usual behaviour for the amp to be unbalanced at extremely low levels?
One more bit of information, the balance control does not appear to be exact. The central position (at normal listening levels) is biased very slightly to the right. The central (sonic) position occurs very slightly after 12 o’clock on the balance dial. When turned fully left and right, the light appears at the 6 o’clock position to the right but approx 7o’clock to the left which explains why the central position (sonically) relates to to slightly after 12 o’clock. I am happy with this as I know where to set the balance centrally and that I could also take the balance dial off and reposition it to get the central point at 12 o’clock. I won’t do this as the unit is obviously under warranty.
For clarity, the situation described above about the dial is not applicable to the low level sound being biased to the right.
I never noticed this on my SN2.
