The Denon DL-103, for example, is 40 ohms. The Hana is 30 ohms.
    Having said that, we're talking about LF cut-offs (usually) in the sub-20Hz region and maybe there's an argument that limiting the LF extension could actually be beneficial by helping to cut out subsonic noise.
    Anyway, plenty of people use Denons with step-up transformers and never complain of lack of bass, so maybe I'm just waffling (again).
    Hi Andrew thanks for your input, I must admit that when I've heard Ortofon cartridges the haven't struck me as being more extended than any other cartridge. I'm familiar with the at Sound and have owned quite a few over the years but prefer a slightly warmer sound. Was wondering if the Hana would give me that.

    I would advise caution with some of the older Orfofons. The new ones mostly have reasonable output voltages around 0.5mV and still have low source impedances of around 5 ohms. Some of the older ones have extremely low output voltages which can be a pain to work with without a high ratio transformer (between about 1:30 and 1:50). The MC2000 had an output voltage of only 0.05mV, which is 20dB lower than Ortofon's new cartridges. The MC2000 II had a higher output voltage of 0.125mV, which is better, but still 12dB lower than the new ones.

    Go for an ATOC9III If you like a slightly warmer presentation.

    Review of the OC9.

    I used oc9's for ten years but then used Grado Platinum and much preferred the tonal richness. I'm looking for a mc that gives me a rich full bodied tones but with extended highs.

    Fair enough. Find yourself a AT ART7 That'll fix that problem for you.
