The right channel on my 980 has for a while been getting more staticy and quieter. Eventually it dropped out altogether. But the headphone out sounds as good as ever. Today I pulled it apart and applied deoxit to the balance and volume pots. Since I had it open I checked and adjusted the DC offset, which was quite off on that channel.
Now she sounds great once again. But the question I have is what caused the channel drop out? Can bad offset do that? Was a combination of both things that lead to static and then drop out?
Alright, that was three questions.
