What kind does tubes does it take? maybe there's a lower gain variant.
The EAR 834P has a lot of gain. I used one for over 20 years. Great for MM carts, not so great for Lo MC.
My MM cartridge is very full and resolved thru out its frequency range causing this phonostage to sound too hot, but in a non-offensive way.
The guys on DIYAudio seem to think that using a different tube type will negatively alter the units equalization, even when placed in V1 (impedance mismatch).
I plan to put a trimpot at one of the inputs of a preamp that I am going to build.
