First of all this is a fantastic forum, with very good info. My german isn't that good so i write in English, hop you don't mind. I do can read in German quite well.
I bought a Omtec Antares CP-1 (generation i don't know but its the black one with the blue paint, and VGA cables) and now trying to make it work well.
I noticed that the volume is very high on my MM cartridge (Nagaoka mp-300 and mp-500) and am wondering if i do something wrong. The Nagaoka wants 47Ohm, and in the manual they suggest to press number 1 on the DIP. It's so loud that i can easy listen on only 10% on my volume. Bass is quite heavy. Also, with for instance a trumpet, it sounds very shallow, shrill almost, with piano also and with chamber music you can hear a lot of detail, but also a bit harsh sounding things. Also, records that sounded very clean and good now sound bad. Not bad, but instantly i can hear scratches i didnt hear before with the MF's.
Former preamp was a Musical Fidelity v-LpsII with a V-PSUII. Total diffrent sound.
Anybody a sugestion to get the most out of this pre amp?
