I have limited TT experience and have just added the VPI Scout TT to my system. It seems as though the sound is very much on the high side, almost 'tingy' (I don't no any other way to describe it but I am getting little or no bass). I am using a Dynavector 10x5 cartridge. I also do not get any noise from my speakers until the gain on my pre-amp is turned over 1/2 way up. Is this normal?
