Sound too low and "tinny" after burning cd

I am recording LPs, then burning to CD. I have followed all of the instructions, made sure the setting was on “Stereo - 2 channels” and the cd still has to be turned up almost all the way and sounds flat when played. How do I make the recording louder and “fuller” sounding? I believe the problem is in the recording of the LP, but cannot figure out what I am doing wrong or how to adjust the volume level while recording.
