Adam A7 front input gain discrepancies between L and R monitors

Right, I have got some new A7s.

I have to put the input gain on both real low at the moment until I get some monitor gain control to go in between my audio interface and the A7s (they are currently set to around -30dB!)

The Left monitor needs to be one one notch lower than the Right monitor's setting. Does this seem right to anyone? I thought they should require the exact same input gain amount to sound balanced.

I will have to try setting them both to 0dB and see if they sound balanced at that level, but at the moment they will be both so loud that I don't think I will know if they are truly balanced!

Yeah, I've noticed the same thing with mine. I'm not sure what the issue is, but they sound very close when I set them up the way you described (one notch difference).

i find that quite strange as my cheapo yamahas don't have this problem. Is this a defect?
