How much gain are users of high output MC or MM, or MI cartridges using? Is 40-50DB gain from the phonostage to much for cartridges ranging from 2.5 to 5.0 output? Personal experiences would be great. Thank you.
I use a HO MC Dynevector20X with a Graham amp 2SE for MM or HO MC. My results are fabulous and leave me wanting for nothing. I think the carts output is about 2.5 MV and the phono stage gain is about 40 DB but look it up for exact numbers.
