I went from a high outout Grado Sonata to a low output Statement 1. I use it with an RCM Sensor Prelude. My general impression is that the low output version trades a little drive and "slam" for greater nuance and detail. The HO Sonata had a greater "boogie" factor, the LO Statement is more refined and delicate sounding. Not delicate to a fault, but noticeable. I suspect that impression is subject to change with different phono stages, but it held true with both Sutherland and RCM in my case.
