Improve Audio Setup Advice
I'm wondering where the best place to start is to improve my setup. Specs are as follows:
Thorens TD-160 Super Turntable/SME 3009 Series 2 Improved Tonearm/Ortofon OMB10 cartridge
Thorens TD-165 With Standard Factory Tonearm/Signet MR 5.0 Basic Cartridge
Yamaha RX-530 Receiver/Amplifier - Auditone 12 Inch 3-way Speakers
Pioneer VSX-D511 A/V Receiver/Amplifier-Stock Tower Speakers
Yamaha KX-530 Tape Deck HX Pro B/C Etc
Harman/Kardon TD-420 Tape Deck HX Pro B/C Etc
All components are hooked up with cheap budget line jack cables which are quite old. I use a 4 way av switch box to switch between cassette decks occaisionally. I use a uninteruptible power supply to protect all equipment. I record from vinyl to cassette frequently. The Yamaha RX-530 is the pre-amp for the turntables at the moment.
I prefer the sound from the Thorens TD 160 super better than the TD 165.
I am generally happy with the sound but am keen to improve. Maybe a seperate pre-amp for the Turntables is a good start? Or an upgrade of the line jack cables? Should the belt be replaced on the Thorens turntables even tho its not slipping? Ortofon OMB10 or Signet MR 5.0 basic best on SME arm?
Any advice would be appreciated.
