Does it happen on every recording, or just a few?? Are they the exact same resordings that you're comparing the CD/SACD playback to?? It could easily be the recordings themselves and have nothing to do with your system. Everyone talks about tweaking things or changing components, but that can't make up for microphone placement, the original hall or studio, the choice of microphone, equalization in the recording process, the volume of the individual players, etc. If they are the exact same recordings, you may want to wait until you have a few hundred hours on the TT and preamp before worrying.
