Hi, I am desperate to solve this issue. I *want* to enjoy my vinyl. I listened to vinyl as a kid up until CD's. I want to enjoy vinyl the way everyone else seems to on the forum. My System: Cambridge Audio CXA61 amp Cambridge Audio Alva Solo preamp Fluance RT-85 w/ Ortofon 2M Blue Klipsch RP-600M speakers When I listen to vinyl is is "undefined" and underwhelming. CD's sound FANTASTIC. Bluetooth streaming even sounds GOOD. Blue Note Jack McDuff Moon Rappin' is the only vinyl that sounds okay. Prince Sign of the Times (for example) is supposed to be good vinyl and sounds sad. a little muffled and uninteresting. Same with ZZ Top Raw. Kiss Alive. etc. Is the Ortofon Blue "too good" and brings out the disappointment in most vinyl? Did I set it up wrong? If I so much as sneeze, it skips. Very "persnickety" turntable or needle? I have it set at 1.8 My ears are no longer young and I have some tinnitus. Have I grown too used to CD's to enjoy vinyl? Any help would be much appreciated. I see all the passion for vinyl and the sound quality of vinyl and I am not getting it. Thanks!
