Hi :\nJust aquired a Denon DP-37F turntable and installed a Shure M97xE cartridge. Set up the cartridge with a protractor, set correct tracking force, etc. Much to my disappointment, when plugged into the phono input of my HK 3700 receiver, it sounded awful. Thin, harsh, very weak bass. The HK sounds great with digital sources.\nYears ago I had a Luxman LV-105 amp with an AR XB table (same model cartridge). Vinyl sounded spectacular, and I actually preferred it to digital sources.\nSo the question is does my Harmon Kardon HK3700 have a lousy phono preamp, or is it a problem with the Denon? I'm really anxious to get back into vinyl but records are almost unbearable to listen to with this setup.
