Do you have the phono pre hooked into the integetrateds phono input? If so, that will sound BAADD...

For a 6.8mV cartridge I think 35Db is way to high.
In my bedroom I use a 6.5mV Goldring 1042 cartridge with a Aaron Phono Module II witch I've set on 23Db gain, and that seems to be just enough.
Even 25Db will give some distortion in the signal out of the preamp.
Try to set your phono at about 20-22Db gain for a start. When that's not enough go up in steps of 1Db.
