I want to increase the gain +6 dBs, I'm using this schematic without C10 so instead 63dBs I have 57dBs, wich one will be a better solution:

-Partridge 977 1:6 15dBs step up, what I have to do about load resistor? I have to take of 150R from Simplistic & adding a resistor at the ouput of the step up, I don't know how calculate?

-Salas active pre-pre 1:10 20dBs, I don't know hows but I think it need to be modified because will be connected to MC instead a MM and also is the load resistor, I don't know how calculate?

-Make a new active pre-pre for only +6 dBs?

-Using Sowter 9395 autoformer attenuator and utilize its +6 dB gain tap as suggested to Kent?

What I suggested to Kent was for output volume control straight to his amp along with gain at output. Useless at input side.

For 63dB you make the pre-pre and himc chained together. No individual circuit or pre-pre to 57dB matches. Unless you can compromise to a capacitor bypass on the one you already got.

Can you measure their real secondary value on 230V mains? Want to know for another project. Thanks.

Without load? 60VA or 120VA?

Without load only one secondary 0-24V I read 26,2VAC

OK thanks. Is that the 120VA model in pictures?

Thanks Salas and Merlin for the info.

At 134.33 each for the Sowter 9395, it's a bit rich for my frugal budget. It would be a nice all-in-one solution though.

I was going to use the Lightspeed LDR attenuator, as I already have built it.

I will try the 1000u source bypass cap across R2 on Q1 and see how it changes the sound.. I'll need to get a Simlic or Muse at that value.

Cheers- Kent
