Question about NAD 218THX 2-Channel Amplifier
It could be a number of things. Try this test first though. Play some music and swing the balance control to the bad channel and turn up the volume all the way if needs be. If you hear any music breaking in the pre-amp is ok. If not it could be dead. Again if you hear faint music it's the power amp that's not working.
Next have a look inside. You should be able to identify the channels by following the wires from the speakers. Remember that stereo amps are just two mono amps joined. So the Right Channel will act as a guide to what the left should look like. Plus if you are any good with a volt meter provide the correct voltage indications. Any burnt/damaged parts on the left and not on the right is an indication of the fault area. If you have no output from the above test pay close attention to those parts on the heat-sink for the affected channel.
Ignore the power supply parts are anything that is on it's own, unless it's an IC with both channels going into it. As they can go faulty on one channel, but not the other sometimes.
If you can't find anything it might be an idea to replace the left output device(s).
