I´m a new member but have been reading post´s here for a while now. But I need your help with some troubleshooting and finding a solution to my problem.
I recently upgraded from listning to music through my laptop with my HD650 and a B-tech (really bad) headphone amp to the setup you see above. I inherited a Technics SL1210 MKII player and a lot of LP´s from my father and I wanted to listen to them. So I bought a Musical Fidelity V90-LPS RIAA-amp and better headamp, a Little Dot MKIII to be exact. The Little Dot MKIII works fine with the laptop ( although a DAC would do even more for the sound). But when I installed everything and took the record player for a test run, the sound was hideous!
It sounded like a really badly ripped mp3 playing through a broken speaker or headphone! When I plugg in the old B-Tech headphone-amp the sounds is normal, when connecting my Bose Cinemate II to the B-Tech through it´s line-out, I don´t get any problems with sound. I haven´t tried to connect the Bose system to the Musical Fidelity RIAA-amp yet. But I´m a bit confused why I don´t get it to work as I want to. I emailed David at Little Dot as soon as I discovered the issue and he was really great to respond quickly but I don´t understand he´s answer. He asked me to double check that the RIAA-amp is properly applying the RIAA equalization and bringing up the signal to line level.
How do I do that? I obviously works fine with the B-Tech Headphone-amp.
In my world it should work just fine, because everything is a normal line-in, line-out connection and the level´s should the same.
Do you have any thought´s about the problem and what I can try to do in order get my setup to function properly?
