    Turn it off, unplug and check all the cables from source to it and from it to the right speaker, if your lucky there is just a loose connection. If you use banana plugs check the cable is tight, sometimes they slip a bit so are hardly actually connected to the plug.

    Do these basics and then you can either go phew, or get slightly more nervous!!

    Have you tried plugging the Densen back in since then to check it wasn't a loose cable.

    Also with the Densen plugged back in swap the left and right cables around just to be ultra paranoid. If with densen back in and swapped round cables it's still coming out of the same speaker and then you swap back to the differnce cd player then it looks like it could be the Densen. It's worth the extra checking to be safe it's not just a cable problem.

    Thanks
