Turntable sound getting gradually worse?
I seem to be having some Turntable woes and I am not sure what my next step is so hope somebody can help.
I have a Michell GyroDec with a RB303/1012 Arm/Cartridge combo.
I was using a Pioneer AV amp/2020i/Furutech ADL GT40 and although it sounded good I wanted to go the whole hog with stereo so I bought a Roksan K2 Integrated and Power initially with the 2020i but then I bought some K2 TR5 speakers.
I went to listen to Pearl Jam Ten and the sound is compressed and woolly with no drive or presence at all.
Other Albums sound the same.
I can't believe the Phono stage in the Roksan is that much worse than the GT40?
A local HiFi shop who obviously disliked the Roksan tried to sell me a Phono Stage but I am unsure as to whether that is the problem.
Could my stylus be gradually on its way out?
Is my system now more revealing? And just showing up the downfalls of my TT combo?
Can anybody suggest a Cartridge with a bit more drive and sparkle?
CD and Sonos sounds great so its not my combination of kit.
Hope somebody can help.
