Playing audio from itunes to my Apple tv through the HiFi Kicks the ass out of the over £3k turntable set up.
I totally give up, Apple TV is just more dynamic and powerful sound.
Sounds as though the Dynavector (which has a low output even for a low-output MC) isn't providing quite enough signal for the sensitivity of the phono stage. In the short term, you could try turning the amp's volume up a bit, but a change to the phono stage settings (if sensitivity is adjustable) or a different stage would be a better solution.
Or perhaps you just prefer the sound of iTunes files! Are these MP3s or uncompressed?
