Electrical characteristics of Repro heads vs. Phono carts..?
I've been trying to find specs on (studio) repro heads without much luck. Does anyone know where I can find this kind of info?
My impression is that:
(1) tape playback
- and -
(2) vinyl LP playback with an MC cart
require roughly the same gain, overall. (Which is: a lot of gain :) )
However, I am more interested in the internal impedance of studio repro heads, also their inductance, in addition to typical output voltage etc. I recall reading on the Manley Labs website once, in a discussion of their all-tube repro preamps, that their gear was designed for Hi-Z (high inductance?) heads rather than low inductance. This is all I can remember seeing anywhere.
If anyone can point me in the right direction, I would certainly appreciate it!
