Basic Speaker Level Troubleshoot

Hello!

I've recently bought a new record player and receiver and am so excited to listen to my LP collection. Already the forum has helped me balance out my speakers - thank you! Though I'm still trying to solve one thing.

My speaker levels are very high on both speakers. The volume is incredibly sensitive, and barely needs to be touched to increase the volume. This is then distorting the quality of sound, I believe.

I'm a beginner so don't mind my basic level of understanding. I've been careful to ensure red to red, black to black. On the receiver i had the option of connecting speakers to an A output or B output - I have them both in A outputs for left and right.

Any insight is appreciated - thank you!

As usual this post is a pig in a poke - no info about the specific speakers and receiver involved.

If the receiver volume control is too sensitive and the receiver has channel level trim settings, the channel trim settings need to be turned down. The means for accessing the channel trims is in the User's Manual. RTFM!

Please list of the model names/numbers of your equipment, so we can know what you are working with.

I'll be back later...

Yes, what record player, what cartridge, what receiver. Is your record player amplified and designed to drive "aux" inputs rather than the high gain RIAA? Or are you running a MM into a MC input?
