From sheer brightness initially. Lets see what tweaks it may take.

I should see with a thicker mat for the nose up just to try. How does it compare to Benz-Micro MC-Silver?

Heftier but less resolute and not as smooth. Price tags are flirting with normal MC class such as Ortofon Rondo though, when having an MC pre.

Heftier, but less resolute is Goldring, I suppose?
Yes Rondo Red is flirting, although at some 100 euros more as Benz Silver.

Have you ever came across this one Ortofon MC 25 FL

First issue might be:

I am using a shunt that takes very long time to reach the desired 35Vout (tempco effect)

Starting at 33.5V, voltage at emitter of bc560c is allready 8v but only 2.5v at the collector.

I can only reach 4v there when the shunts output 35v....

Now I will be working on the riaa filter... let´s see how it sounds after

Yes the Goldring.

Yes, MC25FL is (was?) even better, smoother than the Rondo Red.

In general a cart is a personal taste thing and can yield different results easily regarding each TT synergy and set up, or even having something that other elements in a system are lacking or having in excess, like complimenting the speakers for instance. Beyond Denon DL103 or DL103R which is a cart with so classic sound that not many seem to totally discard its difficult to put the finger in the low to mid price range without experiencing the asking system for real. Add Dynavector 10X5 in the top dogs HMC list. Major strength is having a DIY tweak phono to press them in right tonal service. If establishing the right tone in a system, then the other strengths or blemishes are of lesser order.

It reacts normally for collector voltage, wait for 35V as a warm up period also or put a 2SK117GR or BF245A in the PSU's ref that settles faster.
