    I am assuming there is something wrong with my unit. Playing around with a ton of settings no matter what i do volume on the left speaker is always a fraction of the right speaker. Anyone else have this problem? Or can confirm that it should not be this way?

    I cant confirm it, but it seems the left side of the slate has troubles in some units. So, try to test everything (USBs, SDCARD, HDMI, etc) to see if something is acting weird too.

    If you have an external dvd drive, consider using a linux LIVECD (i assume that it will detect the soundcard), and if the sound problem persists then it's probably a HW problem.

    My left speaker is a bit louder than the right, but I can adjust it by moving the balance control in Media Monkey one notch to the right. That makes them sound about equal to me.

    why amazon? dont you have to use asus warranty?

    One other thing that you can try is to plug in some external speaker/earphones and listen if they are imabalanced too. If they are not, it's probably HW problem.

    Dont worry, had to send mine to asus warranty too.

    Asus warranty should only be used if you're out of warranty from the place you bought the unit from.
