I have a Dynavector 10x5 cartridge; it's a high output MC (2.5 mv).
I am having too much gain using the MC input on my preamp, so here's my question:
My preamp's MC input is a "head amplifier for moving coil phonograph cartridges with a separate RCA jack input for cartridge loading". This means that there are two sets of input jacks; one for the RCA's coming from the TT, and one for cartridge loading. The pre came with several RCA plugs that have a resistor, with several values ( going from 1 ohm to 200 ohms). Will this help me play with the gain? Right now I don't have anything plugged there (the cartridge has a recommended load impedance > 1,000 ohm, and Dave Belles told me that the pre without any load would work fine). So, what will happen if I plug resistance to these load jacks???
Probably a very basic question...:o
