Listening to my RP1 with headphones (distortion)
I'm new to vinyl and having problems with my set up.
I have a Rega RP1 turntable into a Rega Fono Mini preamp into a Denon PMA-255UK amp.
At the moment I just listen to music on headphones (Sennheiser HD 280 pro) plugged into the headphone socket of the amp.
I'm not expecting mega audiophile quality sound, but I'm pretty sure my set up isn't sounding quite as it should do. I listen mainly to rock and pop and on the louder tracks I notice some distortion, particularly on the vocals.
I'm pretty sure it's not a problem with the vinyl as I got it with new vinyl as well.
I'm guessing it might be the headphones not being suitable, or requiring a headphone amp between them and the Denon ?
Or a problem with cartridge alignment?
