Streaming Internet radio to Yamaha CR-620 - only Mono works

Hello,

I have a CR-620 and it works fine with my Technics SL-1200 turntable. I am now trying to stream some Spotify music from an iPad2 docking station to the AUX input, but I do not seem to be able to get both speakers to work. When I switch to mono, both work.

Would you advise on where the issue may be as well as a solution perhaps?

Hi,
First you need to logically work out which part of the chain is at fault?

(1) Switch the L/R plugs at the amp end - if the same channel is down then it's a problem with the receiver socket, input switch etc. If there's a spare line input eg tape, try that instead.

(2) If the problem switches channels then if possible swap the plugs around at the docking station end - if the same channel is down then it's a dodgy cable, if not then it's a problem with the docking station/iPad/music file. If you can't swap plugs around because it's a single 3.5mm plug, try another cable?
