The output of that cartridge is a high 6.8 to 7.2 mv. Try all three settings on the Sherwood and see which sounds best!

Just to be clear, we are talking about the output of the cartridge in terms of its signal voltage. We are not talking about the input sensitivity of a cartridge, which is a term that almost makes no sense. Sorry for being pedantic, but if you want to make yourself understood, it is good to get the terminology right.I agree with what everyone else said, try all three settings and go with what you like best. Often the lowest possible gain setting will sound best because of less circuitry in the pathway.
I settled on the medium setting as that sounded fine to me. Also, the Sherwood is completely restored and sounds amazing. I went vintage for the second system and for under $500 it sounds so good I am wondering why I ever spent so much on the fancy modern components. Some of the old speakers like the AR 5s, Polk Audio Monitor 7s, and Ohm Ls sound excellent, but that is another subject. Thanks all!
