Hello there, this is my first post and I'd love some advice before spending more money aimlessly. I have slowly started to piece together a "higher end" do it all system for an extra room in my home. I want the system to do both AV plus nice two channel listening for my record collection. I make a modest living so I'm trying to do this within my means.
I bought a Sony STR-DA5500ES receiver last month mainly because I have a friend who works for Sony and I paid WAY less than retail, also it had had a phono stage. Next I purchased a Rega RP-1 w/ performance package turntable because the price was right and it was way better than the old Numark I'd had forever. This last week I finally upgraded my speakers with a pair of Goldenear Triton Sevens and a Force Field 4 sub, the additional surround speakers will come with my next paycheck..So here is the big question, so far everything sounds pretty wonderful except the sound of the vinyl needs considerable more volume than playing a CD? Do I need additional amperage for the table to play at it's peak level??
