Put simply, the Elite has a little less 'gain' than the 306, so you will need to turn the wick up a bit more on the 34. This is definitely not a problem or any fault.
Provided you can get a suitable volume level, them leave it as is.
If you feel that flat out it doesn't go loud enough, then it's not difficult to find someone who can do the necessary modifications to the 34 to increase the output level if you don't want to get 'down and dirty' on it yourself.
I know you can change the input sensitivity, which will increase the output level. This won't do any harm, but it might lead to some distortion and possibly not the best sound.
Still, if you feel up to it, suck it and see.
Nice combination thouigh. Somewhere in the pile of chaos I have a 34. I really must get it out to play sometime. A very good sounding and competent pre-amp.
No, just couldn't be bothered, seems too complicated and expensive to me. Not too mention all the faffing about with weights, arms and God-knows-what. Knowing myself, I would probably concentrate more on that than enjoying the tunes.
i should mention that as serge says it is perfectly normal. IIRC, the manual says that a normal listening level is between 12and 18 which is pretty much what you have. So the best action may be to do nothing at all 😊
