I've got an omtec cp-1 phono preamp and have to make myself a few rca loading plus for my dynavector mc (xx2 mkii) and have sent a mail to a firm in Germany who sell resistors..
They don't really get what I want and want me to tell them the loading capacity: from 10-100 ohms is what I want to try out, maybe a bit higher..
They also want me to tell them how many volts and what not these resistors should have.. they stunt me the following info and link :
Line 1 : We do not have these resistors in value of 80 and 90. I have filtered as much as possible according to customer's info.
We are unable to filter more as we don't know the tolerance need, the voltage rating and the power.
Please have the customer to review following in order to filter himself with his needs :
From what I have read on the net, a lot of people don't like/recommend carbon resistors, but metal foils.
Could you tell me what they want to know?
Any help would be nice, as I can't use the unit without these loading resistors ( the seller needed then for his new preamp and I had no direct contact with him...)
Thanks a bunch in advance
