In this case the circuit was limited in its dynamics due to it being at the budget end of the Croft line. Re-figuring the circuit made a good improvement but not in any way introducing other limitations.

    I believe Mike was having the issues before any modifications were made
    The improvements were clear from first plug in Alan, not something one can always say.

    I hope this helps in some way, having been there myself with systems sounding odd several times it can be frustrating getting to what is the cause.
    Thanks Adrian, I'm pretty sure I had the same issue when I tried the 909 with a passive, I've also got new speaker cable now - VD hifi series 4mm, which has tamed things a bit, but sound is a tad soft now. The only thing left to change are the interconnects, I think straight wire are copper, I'll check. I will have a play around with trying the passive again, and the 306, and my tonearm, that does look a tad high at the back. I'm not too clued up on cartridge alignment, but don't think I'm missing anything major, use a gauge when setting up.

    I think a mains regenerator could be my next step, the Project speedbox was quite a step up for my turntable.
