Hi David - as previously stated, the Technics deck is noted for its good bass quality and extension. If you are certain that the deck is on a level surface and the arm is properly setup (especially tracking weight), then you may need to look at your phono/preamp settings. The AT is an MM cartridge so it will need to be connected to a phono input offering 47k load impedance. Can you verify that?
