What I meant was that Channel Classics are engineering some of the best recordings in terms of "representational recordings" of live performance sound. My player is a fixed line level source. The input sensitivty of the Korg. is high enough to record directly from most line level sources, the exception to this is probably phono which needs more gain in general. I'm not currently using my best interconnect cables at this point as I had to make up my own rca to mono mini pins cable scheme. This is very encouraging as I will develop that setup parameter significantly, eventually. The pin line input connections could probably be improved upon. I really have to give some credit to analog output stage of my Sony scd333-es player(I would love to be using my Marantz SA8001 but I got disgusted w/ trying to get past the "NO Disc" bug & just disconnected it! Yeah I might purchase another Marantz product!!!) As far as recording place markings & whatever I'm not concerned w/ accessing these as I record a SACD(or albums, if I get ambitious again) as a whole! I was never a "drop the needle" kind of person even in my vinyl days(always considered it unnecessary wear & tear) If I were using a gain stage in front of the Korg(In this case,your pre-amp) I think I would try setting the rec level on the Korg to 0db & experiment w/ the pre-amp settings. The fewer the adjustment controls used the easier to control your results. remember the simple rule & then go from there if necessary.
