Default Mas Metexas Charisma preamp manual

I recently acquired a Mas Charisma 111 without instructions.
I would like to know how to set up its phono stage to best match my cartridge.
This preamplifier has two banks of 8 dip switches,accessed by unscrewing the lid.
The switches change capacitance ,resistance and gain for the phono stage.
Without instructions, what the switches do becomes very hard to figure out.
The preamp sounds a little dark and lacking top end sparkle.Hoping I can improve it.
Anyone had any experience with these units?
Switches 3 are both set to the on position,and I'm using an Ortofon Rondo Bronze MC cartridge.
And yes I downloaded the free manual from MAS website.It made no mention of the phono stage.In fact the whole download was useless.
