My Mac Mini wants to be an extreme right winger

Please help me diagnose an annoying issue with the sound output in my Mac Mini. Upon every system bootup, the sound output manages to set itself 100% to the right channel. So far, I've not managed to find any search results for this issue. It's a simple fix to move the balance slider to the middle, but I shouldn't have to do this every time I turn on the bleedin' thing.

So, system details: 2010 era Mac Mini, OS X 10.7.4. Sound is usually set to output to my 27" Apple Cinema display, but also can be sent through HDMI to the connected TV (which actually goes through an HDMI speaker bar). I noticed this happening a few weeks ago, but can't pinpoint if a system update caused it. Any ideas? Thanks!
