I have just got a new phono stage which is a Croft RIAA. Overall i am happy with it, the bass and midrange is such an improvement over the Rega fono mini i was using but the treble seems to be rolled off compared to the Rega therefore has less detail, cymbals and hi hats etc are now less audible. I can turn the treble up a bit on the amp which balances up the sound nicely but i was just wondering is that just characteristics of a valve phono stage and i just live with it or is there anything i can do to improve it?
I know it is quite new so maybe needs a bit of running in. If there is anyone can help or has knowledge on this i would be very grateful for your input. If i could just get the treble detail of the fono the sound would be just about perfect.
Thanks in advance
