So it's been awhile since my last post. I have upgraded the table since November and I must say this table is very scalable and looks good too! I added the acryl-it platter, puck-it, Emotiva XPS-1 Phono Stage, and as of Friday night I am now the proud owner of an Ortofon Quintet Blue MC cartridge. Loving the sound of Ortofon's detail with the smooth airyness of a moving coil cart. I only have a couple hours on the cart and the bass is starting to come in. Can't wait until it is fully broken in.
Question on cartridge loading, Ortofon recommends >20 ohms. I've tried 47, 100, & 470. I liked 470's high end punch but was a little bass shy. I've been told that the loading is all listener discretion. My phono stage has 47, 100, 470, & 1k ohms what would you recommend as the proper loading? I'm currently using 100 ohms.
