Hi. I’m having big problems with my Sprout amp. Before I even start a record, there is a high and annoying buzzing sound as soon as I choose vinyl. And when the record starts, the sound is cracking and awful. Makes Tom Petty’s “Refugee” sound like Neil Young’s “Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)”.
I’ve tried both a simple Denon vinyl player and a more fancy Pro-Ject player, both sound awful through my Sprout - and normal on my old amp.
Any suggestions? Is the amp damaged or am I doing something wrong?
