  1. I hate being bi-polar it's awesome - Kanye West
  2. Yep using the NAD phono stage! The inbuilt one on my amp is definitely quiet. The speakers are B&W 603 S2's and the amp is a denon AVR-3805. Inbetween the Planar 2 and the Denon is a NAD PP2e phono stage.
  3. I tried but for some reason ended up being even quieter using the onboard phono stage. I will try using a different input though EDIT: Put it into the VCR input and its about 4dB louder so i guess its something! The TT is brand new out of the box and is about 7 days old. If it is i'll be claiming warranty on it! Also it came pre-setup so no chance could be wrongly wired cartridge. Definitely, I'm actually already considering a Bias 2 or Elys 2
  4. I've tried to get Schitt from Addicted to Audio, but never in stock. Good to know you can straight buy from Schitt's site.. looks like this may be the pick! Thanks!
  5. Thanks guys! Looks like i'll be swapping out the cartridge in due course but upgrading the pre-amp to one with more output which would have instantaneous results. Was looking to eventually get the Elys2 or the Bias 2 at any rate I should have done a bit more research before buying the PP2e. I did read it was quiet in numerous forum posts, but seemed to be isolated incidents. Funnily enough, I did try it with a different amp, a Musical Fidelity Elektra E11. It was way way louder and of listenable volume. Sadly this amp did not have headphone output (I use headpho
  6. Its connected to the 'CD' input not the phono. Checked all the pp2e's settings.. nothing different to usual. mm selected and input/output properly plugged in. I've also bypassed the pp2e and connected it direct to the amp. Its even quieter. When I switch to a different source, its normal volume.... Edit: had a fiddle around in the avr itself.. its on pure direct mode to bypass any amp processing... I didn't think that would affect the volume
  7. I have the standard Rega Carbon cartridge
  8. Hi I recently bought a Rega P2 TT, and have it connected to a NAD PP 2e which in turn is hooked up to a Denon AVR-3805 which are driving a pair of B&W 603 Series 2. In order to get any listenable volume, i have to crank it all the way up to -17.0dB, and on some quieter records all the way to -4.0dB, so my amp is running full tilt all the time. I've been eyeing upgrading to a Pro-Ject Phono Box V USB as it seems to have a dial to control the pre-amp output. Would there be any other recommendations out there? Hoping to "upgrade" the phono stage while im at
  9. The fun started the minute it came out of the packaging. Rega's tracking weight instructions weren't too clear for someone clueless like I am and took a few youtube videos to figure it out. Got there in the end. The sound quality even with the Carbon cart is definitely a solid improvement over the LP60X using a NAD PP 2e
  10. Thanks guys! Went and actually bought the P2 this morning in white
  11. So I'm back again! With another question.... So i got all the necessary financials sorted out and im all set to go in and buy it this weekend. HOWEVER, now I saw the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB with an Ortofon 2M Red cartridge for the same money. It's got an acrylic platter which some say is better than glass (based on my google research). Should i stick to the P2 or look into the Debut Carbon? Not sure how the Rega cartridges compare to the 2M Red at this price level. Any opinions would be much appreciated!
  12. Looks like the go is getting a P2! Thanks guys! I'll wait a bit longer and jump into a P2. I like the look of the white one, but is the plinth perspex/plastic? If so does it go yellow as do most white plastic objects?
  13. Hi Everyone! I'm pretty new to vinyl, and currently have a Audio Technica LP60X. I'm looking at moving onto something with an upgradeable cartride and came across the Rega P1. It seems great and my level of finesse in listening to records i don't think warrants a P2. However, I'm concerned that as i listen to more vinyls, I'm going to eventually want to upgrade to a P2, at which point im thinking why not just start off with a P2. So i guess my question is, for those who have had either of them, 1. Can you attain P2 level SQ/tonality by upgrading the cartridge/stylus? 2. Can
  14. Hi everyone! Just have a quick question, my BW CC6 tweeter died (whether its the crossover or the actual tweeter I don't know) and I've looked at fixing it or replacing any possible dead components and it doesnt seem very feasible, so I'm looking for something similar size dimension wise. I'm also currently using a pair of BW DM603 S2 floor speakers with it. I've been looking at the HTM6, but looking at maybe something slightly cheaper than that if possible. Don't really know where to look as I've owned these forever and haven't kept up to date. Any help will be greatly
  15. Hi! I'm new to audio but have been interested for a while. Mainly have basic headphones and portable DAC's, but nothing HiFi (Always out of the budget). Looking to expand and find out more and hopefully invest in some gear
