To rule out misunderstandings: This is your turntable?
I'm asking, because there is a variant of the Pro-Ject Elemental without build in phono pre- amplifier... .
If this is your turntable, you could try another Line Input at your amplifier (for example CD or Tuner ) and "look", whether the volume is now at a normal level. If you still have to turn up the volume till maximum, I would guess, that the build in pre- amplifier of the turntable could be defective... .
