Thank you all for such fantastic advices! Wow, what a great bunch of friendly people who all share love for good sound.
Question: I am currently using re-tipped Denon DL-103 cartridge (micro ridge stylus on boron cantilever) into Lehmann Audio Decade phono into Dynaco PAS-4. I know that Dynaco PAS-4 also has all tube phono preamp built in. I'm not sure that my Denon DL-103, which is rated at around 0.3 millivolts output (LOMC) would supply high enough signal for the Dynaco PAS-4 phono stage.
I also have in my collection Empire EDR9 moving iron cartridge. Wondering if that cart would give sufficiently high output signal into the PAS-4 phono stage? Also, I still haven't tried Empire EDR9 in my system (although I have it mounted and set up on another Jelco head shell), so I'm wondering if that cart could compete with re-tipped Denon DL-103 (I'm a big fan of LOMC cartridges).
To preemptively answer the logical question "why don't you just try it?", in my defence I must say that in the current configuration in my listening room, I'd have to make a lot of very time consuming changes to enable my turntable tonearm interconnects to reach all the way to the Dynaco PAS-4 preamp. So, I'd rather just ask if that would be worth the trouble, before I invest half a day in rearranging my audio shelf (don't ask why is it so convoluted).
Thanks in advance for any info/opinion on this.
