Hiss/buzz noises in soprano voices

I have been enjoying my Denon 103 cart since I installed it about 5 weeks ago. But today as I was listening to a record with soprano singing, I heard fairly severe noises that you may call hiss or buzz - the sound is no longer clean and round, but has this hairy buzz in it. The at issue record is Peter Maag conducting Mendelssohn's Midsummer Night's Dream. Not the Decca original but a London reissue. The soprano track is the spotted snakes song which in the most inner track fairly close to the record label area. I then listened to an early digital recording on the Delos label featuring trumpets. The first track was fine with no hisses or buzzes in high pitched trumpet sounds. In the second track, I could detect a little unclean noises, but not as severe. I know this could be caused by many things: record pressing, cartridge set up, or amp or speaker issues. I was wondering what your recommendations would be to further diagnose what might be the cause. Thank you.
