I was wondering how things were coming along with the MU?
Also, I was hoping you could tell me if it will work well with the Benz Ebony LP cartridge. It has an output of .28mV and an internal impedance of 38 ohms. I will be using it in conjuction with the Artemis Labs Ph-1 phonostage. It's an all tubed, 3 gain stage unit that allows for adjustible loading on the back side of the phonostage. Below is a link that gives the specs and talks about the loading capabilities.http://www.artemislabs.com/PH-1-vacuum-tube-phono-preamp.html
I think I'd like to use it with the 26dB gain option. I've never really understood the relationship between the step up transformer and the cartridges impedances, but I know that it is very important in order to get the great sound. Please forgive my ignorance, but I really need your help with this. In case it helps you to know the rest of the system, First Sound Presence Audio Line Stage and the Bel Canto SET40 single ended 845 triode amplifier.
Thank you for your help and Merry Christmas.
