I have a problem that my sound for LPs is to much treble which makes for listening a bit unpleasent.The CD replay is fine and the tuner is fine .Its just the playback on LPs that has to much treble and is harsh.My system consists of = Thorens125+SME arm+Goldring 1042 cartridge. Amp = Yamaha A-S500.Speakers= Tannoy Mercury V.Interconnects =Atlas Element Intergra Analogue. I turn the treble down on the amp but it loses out on the overall sound.Is it my cartridge which has to much treble for the system and shoud I buy a new cartridge.If so, what cartridge which be advisable to buy around the £200 mark tops.

It's probably the phono board in your amp. If you'd asked someone to give you a list of amps with decent phono-stages to sit between your classic Thorens and your comparatively-recent speakers, no modern Yamaha would have been on anyone's list. Your user name offers you good advice in this situation to be honest ;-)

Is this a recent problem, or have you just put everything together and what you hear is the end result. Has the TT or amp been recently introduced? What about TT set up, arm hight etc?
