fwphoto Posted July 10, 2010 Share Posted July 10, 2010 Here's the deal. When I use my CDP or computer as my source, both channels seem balanced, but my rt. channel seems to drop in level a bit when I use my TT. Not totally out, just a noticeably lower level. I summed the L+R signals & that seems to level the signal out so I suspect its the TT that's delivering the unbalanced output. I'm wondering if this can possibly be something as simple as out-of-adjustment tracking. I followed the specs when I installed my cartridge but I'm wondering if more/less might help balance out the signals. Is there a standard for this, like more (higher #) tracking should increase rt. channel & less (lower #) will increase the left? (Or the opposite?) I'm not new to TTs in general, but I don't remember ever having this problem. FYI, here's the system: Sources - Thorens TD 160 + Goldring ELECTRA, Rega Planet CDP, 800MHz Titanium Powerbook (iTunes) + Keces DA-151 DAC Preamp/Amp - Dynaco PAS-3, Dynaco ST-70 (both just back from being serviced) Speakers - Forte IIs (Crites Titanium tweeter diaphrams) TIA, Frank W.
