Question about Technics SL-BD20D Turntable
Hello and thanks in advance for any comments you may have.
I have a Technics SL-BD20D Turntable connected to the phono input on a Yamaha RX-V1700 Receiver. The analog sound level coming from the turntable is probably about 25% lower than that of my other components including DVD, CD and cable boxes (all separate components connected via HDMI, coax and RCA cables). The sound is also quite plain and lacks low end punch. The high frequencies are fine and have enough air but overall my brand new 180g vynil lacks the richness of sound I am expecting from it. I adjusted the volume trim on the phono input to +6dB which improved the level issue a bit but the bass is still missing and now the level is say 15% lower than that of the DVD player.
The turntable still has the factory installed cartridge and I suspect it is part of the problem but is that all that I can get from it? Thanks again!
Get an external pre-amp. They range in price from 25-100 and more, depending on the capabilities. All over Ebay, and electronics sites. That will fix your problem. Hope this helps
