Sound louder for a few seconds...
Hello Linners,

Happy new year!
I have an issue and as I am a newbie I ask to the experts you are:
I have a strange effect: on a new records(Oscar Peterson TRio on the Lost Records from Devialet), I heard on 2 different tracks for the first play and the first time, the sound super more loud than the regular level. It's like the amplifier was sleeping and for any reason awake louder and then return back to sleep.
Here are my questions:
- does this phenomena demonstrate the end of my used Ortofon Bronze cartridge I bought to a French crook ?
- does this phenomena comes from a default of the record ?
- does this phenomena comes from my brand new Rotel Amplifier ?

Any ideas to help me ?

Marc

RE: Sound louder for a few seconds...
If the phenomenon only occurs with this LP then it is clearly due to the LP. I'm not familiar with the LP so cannot comment further.

If the same phenomenon occurs on other LPs then it could be cartridge, amplifier, cables, or speakers.

If this happens using other sources, such as CD, then it must be the amplifier or another component downstream, cables or speakers.

I would check all cables are securely connected and try different LPs and sources if available to gain further evidence and report back to the forum for further advice.

Regards,

Neil
