Loved the Turntable, but Not The Sound

I had an unusual experience with this turntable/cartridge: it didn’t sound very good to me. I know the reviews across the Internet for the Debut Carbon DC are sterling, and I did like the turntable ergonomically. But it sounded sibilant and overly bright, when comparing new vinyl to a high res 96/24 digital file of the same recording. There really was no comparison. The digital file was much more listenable. And had the added benefits of no clicks or pops. I have to believe the problem was the Ortofon 2M Red cartridge, but I didn’t try any others. Sadly, since cartridge and turntable are sold as a package, I returned both. But I do not want to dissuade you from trying it yourself. As they say, your mileage may vary.
