I moved into a new house and bought a brand new Marantz SR7007 home theatre receiver. I realize it's an AV receiver, but it came with great reviews for audio and for the built-in phone stage pre-amp. First, the only room I can put this is larger and has high, vaulted ceilings and laminate floors. For a turntable, I have a nice Rega RP6. I have an Ortofon 2MM bronze cartridge. Speakers are Klipsch RP280 speakers. With that out of the way, my musical performance from the Marantz is weak at best... Lifeless... No guts, no punch. I adjusted input levels, and it sounds hollow. Someone said adding a large floor rug will solve all my problems, but that doesn't make sense to me. Someone told me trash the expensive Rega for BestBuy AudioTechnica. Won't do that. My blu-Ray player needs to be turned up to 55-60 to enjoy it even a little (still not good). The turntable needs to be turned up to 70-72 to enjoy it minimally. Tried increasing input levels. Sounds like listening through a setting from my old Sony ES receiver called "church environment". Not great. Can anyone help with settings and suggestions? Thanks!
