Ortofon Red is AMAZING!
Well guys, I took the plunge and bought a low hours, used ATVM540 ML dual moving magnet cart for my ATLP120 USB turntable. From what I researched, this cart goes well with my turntable. I followed all proper set up instructions, alignment using a protracter, tracking force with a digital scale, and the first record I put on, it came through at very low volume. My receiver is a Marantz with a proper phono channel, turntable set to phono on the back. I've fiddled with upping the tracking force a bit more, used some needle nose pliers and gently squeezed the contacts together a bit better all to no avail. I've scoured the internet and honestly, there are multiple explanations and I'm hoping someone who knows their stuff better than I am is willing to talk me through this. The previous cart I had on it never had volume issues, though I had not ever learned to properly set up my turntable before this week. I'm hoping I didn't buy a dud cartridge and am thinking of returning it. Thoughts?
