A clue please ?

( didn't win though ! )

Cheers

Si.

Keep it coming Indiana !

I think the answer might be...

...5870000pF
&
...5790000pF

Sorry, my dumb humor.
Indiana jones
Raiders of the lost arc.
Just found the well of souls where the arc is.
Sala says the floor is moving.
Indy tosses a torch into the pit showing lots of snakes that indy is scared of and says...

Indy: "snakes.... Why did it have to be snakes?"
Sala rolls over and peers inside, says to indy...
Sala: " asps.... Very dangerous, you go first"

Looking back,i could see how it might look like a insult.
Not the case, truely. I'm just a dork.
Sorry.

Si, the 1k load for the DL-110 is the way to go. From a cold start, one can tell that 47k is not correct or at least not optimal. More definition between notes and reverb that goes on forever.

Here are two photos that tell the rest of the story.

The parallel resistors are 80k, 47k, 30k, 5k, 3.3k, 2.2k, 909, 300, 150 and 100 ohms. Caps are 100pF, 150pF, 220pF, and 330pF. I was going to add a 100k also but realized the switch is a 10 DIP and not 12, like I though was purchased. I can still add it permanently to the board, if needed.

5k, 3.3k and 2.2k get 1025 Ohms. 3.3k and 2.2k gets you 995 Ohms.
I went with 1025 and doubt 995 would be much different...but who knows!

By the way, the above are meter measured readings, not calculated.

Very nice build. But why no use the R20 for loading? Is there any reason?

Some questions about MM and MC cartridges.
.
Output voltage for MM cartridge from MIN to MAX volts (mVolts, mkVolts) ?
Output voltage for MC cartridge from MIN to MAX volts (mVolts, mkVolts) ?
For various models of MM and MC cartridges.

Answers may often be found in the manufacturer's data sheet for the cartridge in question.

MCs are typically 0.3milliV to 0.5millV ... occasionally outside this range so can be 0.1miiliV to 0.6milliV.

MMs are typically 5milliV - but can be as 4milliV or even as low as 1milliV.
