Can things get good and loud if you crank the dial a bit?

Get the Cullen mods if it's stock.But if one has the dough going to Rhea or Ear432 no comparison.One thing that my friend likes with his .23Mv Dynvaector is that he has dual volume control on unit.Not sure he'd be so happy with that cart and 89 db speakers if he didn't have Cary Sli80.Also when you compare gain section of cheaper op amps in GCPH versus better circuitry in pre or integrated thjat would be A/B.Sure purity counts but I have gone passive route for same end and didn't get dynamics or bass.And there is quality difference in same.
I run my GCPH straight into a Classe 100 into NHT Classic 3 speakers and the volume gets as loud as I could ever stand with some left in reserve. The volume control on the GCPH isnt as linear as the one on my Classe 35 so fine tuning volume isnt as nice, but you can get whereever you want with practice. Having the remote control is nice too.
