  1. I've got a Quad 34 with built-in MM phono stage, it was running fine with a HO MC and I should have left it alone I was lent a LO MC and SUT and in honesty, in this system, I preferred the cheap and cheerful 'pick-it' cart over the rather tasty Saec cart. This might be as much to do with compliance, the arm is light and the Saec MC is a heavy lump so the counterweight sits right at the back of the arm. Anyway, the issue/problem. I now need to return the SUT but can't go back to the HO cart as I dropped and broke it, leaving me with a MM phono and MC cart and not a lot of money. Solution 1 Get hold of a quad 34 MC board. I've seen them go on flebay for £20ish but not for a while, the only ones now are £50. How good a stage is the 34 MC? Worth hanging on for? Solution 2 Buy a cheap SUT or head amp? From experience, SUT's can be easy to get right and easy to get wrong, what can I really expect for sub £100? Option 3 Pick up a cheap phono stage with MC like a phonobox se, cambridge etc. With an entry level newr stage outperform a quad 34 board? Option 4 Try and source another sub £100 HO MC? It's only the 2nd system, however I seem to spend more time listening in this room than the main one especially as we come into summer it's the system I'll be using. Swapping phono's, TT's or carts isn't an option, I don't want to disturb the main room. Thanks in advance
  2. Hello. I`m not sure anyone here can advise us,but we have just bought a brand new Quad Elite power amp and have rigged it up to our Quad 34 pre amp (going strong since late 80`s) The Elite is replacing a Quad 306 which we decided to put into retirement! Anyway,after setting it all up we noticed a drop in volume. A comfortable volume level using the 34/306 was at roughly 12 o`clock on the volume control...to achieve that level now with the 34/Elite, the dial is at 2 or 3 o`clock. We read a couple of reviews where people had put the same pre/power amps together and they were pleased with the results and volume didn`t seem an issue.Hence this question. Thanks for reading and hopefully giving your thoughts on the matter
