Actually I prefer the two critters as in Merlin's if a cart is 0.4-0.5mV. Because it can go 59dB without Rs bypass capacitor and is more linear without the doubling of Ciss for 4 critters. Now if you think of the gain needed and noise for 0.2mV carts asking for 4, 2 critters are at least the same hiss for 59dB. I believe that the CCT I posted for Guglielmo is very good compromise. Not ultimate. Just adequate compromise of simple, nice, and tweakable. For ultimate I don't know, Italians know.

I was thinking that the 4 critters front end should be good above all for noise, then for gain. Even in the mid gain 36 V version...
Rs bypass: I'd rather avoid it anyway.
Ciss isn't lowered enough by cascoding the 2 or 4 critters? Input capacitance is very important for MM, less for MC AFAIK.

Merlin, moussaką is very good indeed, but is probably not the very best in Greek cusine!

Ciss is lowering by cascoding but not vanishing. Also 20mA is harder on the BJT than 10mA. 4 are best when the signal level is half normal MC so the THD is still the same. 2 critters is a good midway for better noise on 0.4mV carts and still not overcooking. 4 would unnecessarily push the gain and bring the 3dB noise gain back to equal-, plus a bit more THD. Less is more, don't forget. Merlin skips the Rs noise and goes higher gain. The bypass cap is not compromising as much as you may think by the way. The secret is in fine tuning the Riaa values and components quality there.

P.S. Good report on using 1.2 regs on MC phono. Not for a starter DIYer, and rather complex though. Link.

OMG they are coming to load up the carters of their Seat Leon and Alpha Romeo 159 with olive oil!
