Yes I did. What should be 11uF is 10,96uF
And the 33,3uF part is 33,29uF
the Resistors I dont measure, but if I have my soldering station warm, I will recheck.
As a "Neumann " I used a blank wire (as everybody did).

CompCaps = the compensation caps in regulator.

Libby try sticking a 2.2nf polystrene cap on the input parallel with the loading resistor that should help tame any forwardness. I use 4.7k and 2.2n on my Benz LP (38 ohms impedance)

My Paradie is runing !
No hum or hiss , quite dead .
Im listening since an hour and first notice is details come clear but the music flows .
Sound is wonderfull .
The outputoffset is no problem .
I never heard my colibri sounding so sweet rich and naturally.
Many many thanks to Joachim for the design , Birger for the groupbuy ( yes everything was right except the two 2K trimmer ) , everyone else who helped in this thread and specially to Alfred for his support .

Please let me know the resistor values also.

Can you tape the output sound of your setup and post a file here so we can really understand what you are hearing ?

I will try to make a record by giving the signal direct to CD-Recorder and rip it by EAC to wav (or some other???).
Yesterday I tried more weight (3.0g), less weight (1.5g), solder 1,2kOhm and 2,2nF in input and solder the compansation caps in.
But the fizz/lisp in voices are still there.

I think , like Ralf do , your Highoutput MC is not the right thing for paradise .
I would try an cheap/used or lent Low MC .

It was not designed for high output carts but it works wondefully with a DL160 with 1.6mv output, so that does not seem to be the problem.

wav is cool.

If we listen to it we might identify the problem
