TT with new amp and poor sound

I have a Pro-Ject Debut Carbon EVO with an acrylic platter, upgraded power supply, and an Ortofon 3m Blue, and for my amp, I just bought a NAD C388. My new speakers are Totem Signature 1s. I also have a SONOS connect with two 5s and 2 One SL. My question is this when I stream through the Sonos and Totems the sound is amazing, these speakers are incredible.

When I play records through just the Totems I have to turn the volume on the amp past 50%, closer to 70% to get good clear sound, but it doesn't come close to the clarity of the streaming. Is there something I should be doing to make the sound clearer at a lower volume?

I tried to run the TT the my Pro-Ject preamp and that sounded awful. I bought okay cables - not sure where to start. Thanks for any input.

Make sure your ProJect

Make sure your ProJect turntable is plugged into Phone input and not Line 1. Sorry, I know it is silly, but it did happen to me with those exact results you're describing.

Thanks! I just double-checked and they're in the Phono input.
