 I had a heart dropping experience  earlier today and thought this the most logical place to share it so others may take note.


  I was listening to some stuff through my Solo and it was drasticly swinging from left channel to right channel, due to recording, not fault of equipment. So I figured it would be a good time to compare my TotalBitHead's crossfeed to the Solo. I set my PC to run Foobar through my soundcard to the Solo and the TBH through usb trough Winamp. simple enough......

 My HD580's have a 1/8 jack that I plug into a 1/4 jack to the Solo, and the TBH accepts 1/8 jack. So since I had already heard the songs through the Solo I switched it over to the TBH to get my base with the crossfeed. Then back to the Solo and I had to crank the volume wayyyyy beyond anything I had to before. I thought ....... fill in the blanks here..... Then I checked all my settings, everything was good.Still not much volume as before out of the Solo. Now what? So I unplugged the Solo and the TBH thinking maybe something happened and my pc got confused,or whatever.
  No such luck. Then I rebooted my PC after setting everything to go through my soundcard thinking someting happened in the codec's thinking rebooting would clear it.
 So I start out with the Solo only hooked up,still not near the vo;ume out of the Solo, and it dawns on me that only the left channel is working. By now,after checking everything you can check while pc is off, I'm fit to be tied, calling myself all sorts of names.

 Turns out a simple 1/4 twist of the 1/8-1/4 adapter was the whole problem. Next upgrade is now headphone cable.
