Help needed for a Turntable noob
First time i've posted here so hope someone can help me with some words of wisdom.
I've just managed to pick-up a Rega Planar 3 with a rb300 tonearm off eBay. It's still got it's orgiginal cartridge from 1982 (I've ordered a Goldring 2100) but I've replaced the old belt and everything seems to be in working order. However...
The Rega is plugged into a Cambridge Audio 640P phono stage and then into the AUX input on a Cambridge Audio Azur 350A. With this set-up the volume on the amp needs to be turned up to max in order to get any sensible level from it which I assume can't be right?!
My (probably wrong) initial thoughts are that either something is not working with the pre-amp (if it were broken completely would I be able to hear anything at all?), or that something isn't quite right with the tone-arm witing.
