The issue is with the design of the AR84 vs the design of the Qu. The St2 input on the Qu comprises two TRS sockets, and the left channel is electrically normalled through the right channel. This is what makes the channel essentially mono when there’s something plugged in only on the left. It happens before the ADC and the DSP. As the inputs on the AR84 aren’t wired this way, whatever’s plugged into the left input of St2 on the AR84 stays on the left. Unless A&H implement a soft patchbay ala GLD and allow you to patch a single input to feed multiple channels, or they implement some sort of option to allow the ST channels to be treated as mono and panned accordingly, you’re probably out of luck.

Edit: Beaten. That’s what happens when I don’t refresh the page before responding.
