Rega P3 and Emotiva xps-1 (MM or MC)?


I just bought a Rega P3 and hooked it up to an Emotiva XPS-1 phono stage which has provisions for the MM and MC cartridge. My Rega is fitted with an Elys 2 MM cartridge. Oddly enough, when I use the MM option on the Emotiva, the sound is quite dull and flat, but when I switch to the MC option it comes to life and the sound is very wholesome. Any reason why? And is it safe to keep it on the MC option?

It sounds like the Emotiva is wired or labeled wrong. You should return it for a replacement !
