dang. one channel went out. here is my deal:
I record using a Lexicon Lambda digital interface. it is hooked up to a power amp which runs a pair of passive monitors.
for a year and a hlf everything has been cool. then this week I don'thave one monitor working. I turn the Output knob on the interface and get a pop at a point on the dial. sometimes the channel comes back on. if I crank the volume the monitor works. dialuing the Output knob on the interface back to reasonable volumes the monitor or channel cuts out again.
I believe my connections are good. I suspect the interface has problem.
but I am not sure.

how can I trace the problem?

everything okay in the headphones? that would be a big clue.

yeah. I was just checking. fine and dandy.
so then followed the monitor 's speaker wire. then to look behind the amp I remembered I had to move it forward in the rack. just when I did that I saw the amp's sharp edge sitting right on the cable that connects the interface to the amp. it was dented.
I replaced the cable. and I have both channels.
that's what I get for housecleaning my studio over the weekend.

okay ... that's sort of where I was going. cabling and connectors are the first to be checked. was narrowing it monitor circuit.

well, the problem persists. there is a short in the interface itself.
the headphones began cutting out. double checked with the monitor, reversing cables etc.
no longer under warranty, but I can have it repaired for a flat 45$.
giving that a try because it is less expensive than buying another one.
darn.
now it is on to fix the truck. dashboard light went out.gotta find the fuse box.
grrrr.
