Now the job is done! Let's take a look at his comments and various videos on installation:
All upgrades have been completed on my RP6 turntable. According to my technician, all work went smoothly and he is very impressed with the results.
I am picking up the TT tomorrow and look forward to enjoying the great analog sound.
I will get some photos and detailed comments tomorrow and pass them on to you.
Thank you for your support,
Great news regarding my Ortofon 2M Black cartridge...
You were correct ... It was premature of me to complain about it. What I have found out through listening tests is that the cartridge has a very good mid-range ability to capture the sounds at that level of the sound spectrum.
My Tannoy loudspeakers were set at max mid-range, thus when I played back the vinyl, it was too bright (too much mid-range). It was annoying me, until I set my speakers at one notch lower on the mid-range knob, and results are incredible. You wouldn't believe such a simple adjustment can transform the entire sound, but it does! My system sounds as good as Pro-recorded vinyl I have from systems costing over $100K, so I am extremely happy with my results.
Another important adjustment (tweak) I made was I used an "effect" on my Audacity recording software called "Amplify" which maximizes the volume of the recorded vinyl while ensuring there is no clipping. This made a major improvement in the playback sound of the recorded vinyl (it makes a big difference to ensure the recorded vinyl is at max volume levels).
These 2 changes (and of course your upgrades to my Rega RP6 TT) have finalized my search for vinyl audio quality, and I can rest easy now, knowing I have achieved my goal in creating professional sounding digital recordings from vinyl records.
In my opinion, as a general rule, the vinyl does sound better than cd.
This is why we go to such lengths to get the right equipment for the vinyl.
Thank you, Michael, it has been great dealing with you.
All the best.
