A few years ago I got out of audio and sold off my entire system. At that time I had a VPI Aries 1, JMW 10.5 arm and a Benz Ruby H cartridge. A few months ago I got back in ( missed my music) and put together a more modest system. I now have the Avid Diva II and noticed the same thing. My records just seem much quieter than with the VPI. I thought it may have been the arm (Jelco SA-250ST) or the cartridge (Clearaudio Maestro). It never occurred to me that it may have been the TT. Interesting.
