Find the Problem
I have a technics tt as well, started out with a Pickering cartridge which had the harshness you were talking about. Then I went to the ortofon blue which made a huge difference, but what when I really noticed a difference was switching the headsh... 
Mood

Looking for a great phono pre-amp in the $1000 or less range
