Finally bought a new Turntable!
Thanks for the clarification on line stage, I was a little confused on that before.Well so far so good, I have left my settings on what I mentioned earlier ( 0pf, 475ohm, 66db and RIAA Curve).Music sounds better then when I started.But...I have to...

I'll say it again, so awesome to read everyone's posts. 
Finally bought a new Turntable!
I want to make sure I understand something clearly, some of you are referring to line stage?Could you define that?The output of my phono preamp goes to the input of my integrated amp (one of the inputs).Is the input considered the line stage?Thnx 
Finally bought a new Turntable!
So currently, I set my preamp to 0pf, 475ohm, 66db and RIAA Curve.I think it sounds better but need to spend more time and let it break in.I was reading the owner's manual for the SimAudio Moon 310lp (one step above my preamp) and it states that 4...

Thanks for the feedback.The output is 0.5mv and I believe my preamp tops out at 66db.I will continue to play music this weekend to see how things sound. Perhaps in the near future, I may have to upgrade to a better phono preamp. 
Just Curious - About using a AV Receiver as main unit
@noromance Thanks for the positive feedback.Yea, I also used my Denon in the past and I thought it sounded pretty decent and that is why I am keeping it. Besides, I wouldn't get much for it anyway, it might have been close to $3k in it's day but I... 
Just Curious - About using a AV Receiver as main unit
@dweller Thanks, I am doing ok. @noble100 Thanks for your input, I appreciate it.Actually, I am not looking to incorporate a AVR as I already have a 2 channel system with a Integrated Amp.I had just brought up the subject because I thought it woul... 
Just Curious - About using a AV Receiver as main unit
Miller,Actually, in my original post, I stated "Just Curious" and I also stated, " I will say for myself, I started with a Denon AVR-5700" and also, " Last year I bought a Integrated amp but honestly, I could have easily stayed with the Denon an... 
Just Curious - About using a AV Receiver as main unit
Thanks for all the suggestionsThis was just a thought experiment, as I stated I already have a Integrated Amp that I use.At Millercarbon,I have to say, I can’t imagine they are all crap. I get that if a person can start off with a 2 Channel Compon... 
i just want everyone to know..........
Ok, I'm going to chime in.I recently bought a Isotek Evo 3 Sirius and one High Fidelity Cable MC-0.5.In the Evo I have plugged in the MC-0.5, Integrated Amp, Dac, CD Player, Phono Preamp and TT.Overall, I feel it has made a positive impact. A bit ...

Question about Marantz Price
Sorry, I probably wasn't clear.The table is selling for $800 without cartridge and if I were to add a Hana SL MC (which I am assuming would be a superior cartridge to the stock Virtuoso, please correct me if I am wrong in my assumption), then that... 
Question about Marantz Price
Found out from the vendor that no cartridge is included.But I am thinking, since it has no cartridge (assuming everything else is working well and in good condition) and I were to get say a Hana SL MC for around $600 (after a 20% discount as one v...
