Hello. I have one too. My experience is just try and see, and have found for high output mc the mc setting is better. Some phono stages have much more flexability,allowing one to find the perfect gain for any cartridge. finding the right gain for a particular cartidge is trial and error. The 834p can be extensively modded,as its said to be a great design with poor resistors and caps etc. to find mods search ear 834p mods on audiogon, audiocircle and audioasylum. its said to have not such a good step up to mc. Having said that, using my unmodded one on mc with a denon103/304 on an ol silver arm and fully modded lenco deck is awsome.
