Maybe you can offer me some advice. Here is my situation:
I recently purchased a Denon DL 103 MM Ctg for my Rega P 3 24'table. I was using a Nagaoka MP110 before,with good results..
I have noticed that the output of the Denon is not very high. I a using a 40 watts tube integrated amp,so I only have so much gain to start with..
The Phono preamp I am using is a Musical Surroundings Phonomena 2. It has all kinds of adjustments for loading & gain,but every setting I tried for the Denon just is not loud enough for me.
I do understand that the Denon is a low output MC,but do I need a step-up transformer to use it the way I want to?
The Denon is supposed to be an excellent budget MC Ctg,but I really did not hear all that much improvement over my Nagaoka.
Also, the Musical Surroundings preamp does not have a low filter,like the old Acurus P 10 I was using,so I noticed that my woofer moves a lot more. Is this an issue that I could solve by adding a small weight to my tonearm?
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
