Time for a (reasonably priced) phono preamp...
I have a ELAC PPA-2 and it sounds fantastic. Much better build quality and sound vs the MOFI phono pre I had before it. 
FirstWatt J2 on its way
Well, I'm now off that kick of thinking of a new amp. I know this sounds crazy..I had my ears deep cleaned. Lots of wax. Now my system sounds perfect again with all kinds of music. I still, however, am thinking of a Mac c2700 preamp 
Anyone tried the Ortofon Concorde century Cartridge?
The Century specs above look to be quite close to the 2m Bronze.

My Studio Yamaha active monitor sounds great with recordings. If Yamaha made tower versions, I'd be interested for a second system

FirstWatt J2 on its way
Ok after 10 months I am loving the j2. However, I listen to a lot of electronic music and I feel the J2 is a little muddy on that type of music. Fantastic on Jazz, classical and classic rock. I'm now thinking of trading the J2 in on a Pass Labs XA...
