I have a Denon DL-110 on an RP3 going through a Lounge Audio LCR MKIII. Gain on the Lounge is 40 dB, but based on my research, the 1.6 mV output of the DL-110 should have a phono pre of approx 56db. My analog system goes through a Naim UnitiQute 2 and a Naim NAP 100. Speakers are B&W 685s. I find I have to turn the volume up to 55 (on a scale of 100) for music to start to open up. Additionally, I feel that I have many records that sound closed in, muffled, or veiled compared to their digital counter parts. I don't think this should be the case. I know that HOMC is technically "fine" with MM phono amps, but I'm curious whether there would be something to gain (no pun intended) by having that 16 dB boost. I'm not ready right now to invest in a step up like the Lounge Copla and I'm looking for suggestions or options... 1- is there a really inexpensive SUT that'd do what I'm wanting? Talking less than $100. 2- is there a good DIY project to create a simple, fixed 16 dB boost? Degree of complexity should be low or instructions would have to be REALLY clear. Thanks in advance for any thoughts you all might have.
