Default MC Step up for a VDH Colibri


what do you think is the best choice for this cartridge?

The Problem is 38 Ohm and 0,3 mV.

I can recommend Hashimoto transformers. I have old Benz MC3 with VDH cantilever stylus , 30 Ohm o.2 mV , on Rega P9. My friend is using his Benz Reference LOMc cart similarly speced like yours colibri on Acoustic Solid table. Hashimoto offers full , natural, ballanced sound with great bass and imaging.
