Stereo image off-center

I have a ask. I have used Diana Krall's - A Case Of You (Live) from the Live In Paris album as one of my test tracks (for some weird reason). If streamed from Qobuz or Spotify, Diana's vocals are clearly on right side in my system. I have also the Analogue Production's vinyl version of the album in which Diana's voice in middle. I'm wondering if there is something weird in my system, so it would be nice to hear where is your Diana in your system?


Sounds like you need to check everything.

I used to get intermittant off-center, turned out to be the old corroded, and slightly smaller rca jacks on my vintage McIntosh tuner/preamp. Move any cable of any piece of equipment, a contact on the tuner/preamp might get disturbed, one channel making a better contact than the other.

Audio Classics replaced all the rca jacks with new tight gold plated ones, problem gone.

And I now use cables with locking rca jacks, mess about with anything, they stay firmly connected. 

There are occasional tracks recorded with off-center imaging. The more revealing/imaging your system, the more you become aware of this.

For that reason, I am a big fan of Balance Controls, especially remote balance.

asctim, erik_squires, gosta  thanks for testing.

ddd1, elliottbnewcombjr thanks for the suggestion, but I wanted to if this particular recording is off-center.

fuzztone so you hearing with your ears now, are you?
