I just upgraded from a Audio Technica LP 120 to a Rega Planar 3 with Elys 2 Cartridge and I was honestly expecting a night and day sound quality difference. It really isnt much, especially considering the large price tag. The Rega has a darker overall sound than the Audio Technica. Sometimes even a little distorted. I don't know if its how its set up or if there is an issue with it? I am using a Yamaha RS202 Stereo Receiver, Cambridge Audio MM Preamp and Advent Baby II Speakers. I set my tracking force to 1.5 after having it at 1.75 originally because I read online that is the better option. Any advice from anyone?
