Was wondering if anybody out in the great WAM has any thoughts on loadings for this M/C, if you have found a better setting than the recommended from Ortofon :?

Resistor loading depends on your taste in sound and the characteristics of your room and system. Using effective 470ohm loading as opposed to 100ohm will give a more effusive, less damped sound which may be good if everything else is a bit on the dry side for your taste. I would stick with the standard tracking weight and VTA settings though to keep the inherent neutrality intact.

All advice most welcomed :^
