I suggest you leave Rowland alone for now and upgrade cartridge/table/arm. You have entry-level front end and mid-level preamp; the system is not well balanced.

Thanks for the tips. Inna, I love the Moscode. As I said this is the only phono I have had.I bought the Rega a few months back to try analog and its been worth the hassle. If I upgrade the rig what are suggestions? My dealer will take it in as trade but Rega is his only tables. He thinks I need to go to P-7. What do ya'll think?
@Catahul_bill - I agree with the previous suggestions that you stick with the excellent phono in the Capri (at least for now) and address your table, arm, and cartridge. If you go that route and intend to spend P7-plus money, I strongly recommend you consider the Well-Tempered Amadeus. The Amadeus is a phenomenal table, comes with an incredible tonearm, and completely outperforms the P7. I own and use several turntable rigs ranging in price from $750 to $18500 and my Amadeus is easily my 2nd best rig.
No doubt you will consider to think about the opinions/suggestions offered here, but in the end, like Miner42 said, you must trust your ears!
Hi Bill....get your Rega off of its rubber feet. Use Cardas Blocks or points. That alone is a great improvement. Get the arm rewired, and change to a dropped counterweight. This too will make you smile. Try my first suggestion and then see where you are. I wouldn't replace the Rowland...they make good stuff.
