There are many recordings from the sixties that are considered to be some of the best recordings ever made. The recording chain is simple enough that all the extra digital steps of today don't add any quality to the recording. Although noise floors are slightly lower.

In general LP's with longish playing times tend to be cut lean in the bass department. Usually the first track gets some more vinyl real estate for the initial oomph. So comparing a favoriete song that happens to be at the middle or end of the disc can have a lean bass.
This is why we used to have tone controls in the old days.
What a loud of BS! My Linn in my 2 channel system with CJ and Maggies is superior to my DAC in the same system and my DAC cost hell of lot more than my Linn set up. I have heard digital systems that cost 6 figures+ that dont sound as good as $10K turntable set up.

How old is your 1200? Might try a better cartridge like a Grado Prestige Gold or an Ortofon 2M Red or step to a a Sumiko Blue Point.

Next would be a better preamp/phone pre amp and amp(s). Also setting up your current cartridge correctly would generate better bass.
