Hi guys I've recently set up my system (Rega RP1 > Marantz PM4200 > Wharfedale 9.1s) and am having some problems with the sound quality of the turntable which is seriously making me question why I bought it and am very close to selling/returning it. But hopefully I won't have to do that and you guys are able to help me! First of all, I can hear a slight distortion/fuzziness when playing LPs and there is a constant hum/buzz in the background. Nowhere near close to the crystal clear sound quality I expected which is made even worse by the fact that playing my iPod through the Aux input actually produces a better sound quality than the turntable itself. Second of all, playing through the iPod produces a better soundstage, more clarity, deeper bass and just better overall. Surely there must be something I'm doing wrong or wrong with the turntable? Don't get me wrong, the sound quality isn't AWFUL but surely it should sound better than playing music through my old iPod classic! Any suggestions? I've tried realigning the cartridge and the arm on these turntables is automatically balanced so not sure what else I can do. Could it be a problem with the needle or the RCA wire? Please help!
