Default Pearl Phono stage output matching?

I'm getting ready to build a Pass Pearl phono stage. The cartridge that I'm using is a Ortofon Kantrapunkt A which has 450uV ouput voltage and a recommended load impeadance of 50-500 Ohm. I will run the phono stage into an active preamp. Will this phono stage work with this set up or will it have to be modified some how?

Just to be a bit clearer than my answer in the other post.

The Ortofons output is bang in the middle of the range the
Pearl was tested, (400uV to 500uV), so it should be fine
when used with an active preamp.

You just need to set input impedance to 100R.
