    I came across some youtube video with dual-language audio; ie. one language on the left channel and another language on the right channel.

    The Output page under Sound preference does not have the left/right balance control, probably due to the mono speaker in MBA. If I connect to an external speakers, or headphones, then the balance control re-appears.

    Is there a way to get around this problem, if I still want to use the build in mono-speaker?

    What's the problem again? You can't have dual channel sound if you only have only speaker.

    OH, now I get it. You want to be able to PICK one channel, correct?

    Precisely. The way it is, I hear two voices, one in English and one in Spanish.
