1. My reciever has a phono input, so I'm set there. My particular receiver has a 2 ch "analog direct" mode. No extra processing, just amplification of the sound. Am I correct in assuming that this is the setting I would want to listen to records to? No D/A conversion etc etc
2. Unfortunately the AT-LP60s cartridge can't be upgraded. I have read that the needle could be though. Not 100% clear on that subject though. I see various articles on people upgrading their cartridges. So any knowledgeable clarification on that would be appreciated.
3. While listening with "2 ch analog direct" enabled, my receivers EQ wont function. is there anyway to be able to EQ in the analog domain? Or is analog meant to be listened to 'flat"
4.Pretty sure the AT-LP60 is what I'm going to get. However, if anyone has a suggestion about something in the 100$ range that they think would be better, please feel free to suggest. I know at this price point, there arent a whole lot of options.
Thanks in advance for any help, its much appreciated!
