could sure use some help regarding the Dynavector XV-1s cartridge and Allnic H 3000 phono
stage. What settings for gain and impedance have you found to be the best?
you for all your hard work and writings for The Audio Beat. I am a devoted fan.
In my review of the Allnic H-3000, I noted using the 10k-ohm setting for
the X-V1s, and I will stick by that, although I would also begin with the 47k setting, or
no loading at all, to hear what it offers. That has sounded best with other phono stages,
including the one in the CAT SL-1 Legend preamp. As for gain, that's more of a personal
preference and how much your want your analog playback to equal the output of digital. I
usually set gain around 60dB, which would be near the +24dB/x20 setting of the H-3000.
