    Reason is that the Eroica L has a significantly lower output (0.25mV) than the later LX (0.4mV). Though with 63db of gain it's still well within the area of being a reasonable match.
    Thanks for explaining Tom - makes sense

    Yes, will be the gain of your PS, as, as a general rule MC carts lose 20dB over their MM cousins, there can be further losses if the loading (Ohms) is way off of the recommended or less than 10 - 12 times the internal impedence if an open ended impedence range is given.
    Thanks John - starting to learn a little about MCs now

    You might find it more rewarding to use the Eroica through a good SUT into the MM input, should you feel like exploring that approach.

    As a dyed in the wool SUT fan I'd agree with that! Something like a 1:20 should get you back up around your MM sort of level.
