Hi folks, I'm totally new to the world of high-endish turntables, so forgive me if I doing this all wrong.
I managed to get a good deal on a still-new-in-the-box P2 with Bias 2 cartridge. I wanted to get the best sound possible, so I invested in cleaners, a MoFi Geo-Disc for cartridge alignment, a stylus force gauge, level, etc...
I got everything set up to perfection, and started checking out some records through a MusicHall preamp and a generic headphone amp that's served me well through the years. What I was greeted with was a sometimes detailed and revealing sound, but overall what I'd describe as gritty and sibilant. "S" sounds overwhelm the mix, and the distortion on inner grooves is pronounced, almost unbearable.
I have a gut feeling that the Bias 2 is bringing the whole system down here. Any experiences with what I'm going through?
