Hello all. I am returning to vinyl after a 10 year digital abscence. I sold most of my previous system (Rega Planar2, and Monitor Audio speakers) some years back and as an entry back in, I am using my old Cambridge A1 amp, Kef Coda speakers and I have just bought a Thorens TD 160 mk 2 turntable, with Ortofon VMS 10 Mk 2 cartridge.
When I run the Thorens through the amp, the sound is VERY low, so my question is; Does the Thorens need a pre amp or phono amp to get the power up (my Rega just plugged and played), or should I be looking at the cartridge which came with the turntable? (It was bought from the bay of E). The phono output works on the amp, as do the speakers.
I'm not much of a techno/audiophile, so please be gentle!! Thanks
