    Thanks, I guess mine was made before 2013/14. My problem is with my gain with using my analog system. I have to turn the volume up too much to where in between songs I can here my preamp. My analog system is SME 20.2, Graham 2.2 tonearm, Ortofon Windfeld, and Canary Audio MC10 phono. I have to turn the volume up 100% more than when using my digital ( ModWright DAC with Oppo 103). Step up transformers us MM output and my phonosage has only 2 MC selections. I could send my MC10 back for different transformers to up the gain (69.1) but don't know if that is the right way to go

    Hi Jim,

    What volume number is the 080 displaying when using your phono? And, is your Canary 69db?

    Normally with my digital 9 is max., and with phono I have to go to 16-19. My MC10 is 69.1db. Thanks

    Hi Jim,

    Not knowing the sensitivity of your CR-8's, the Elyse could be outputting a fairly high voltage and the mC10 fairly low, I can see that the Lundahl tranformers can be wired for 1:5, 1:10 or 1:20, would you know which option they used? If the Windfield puts out 0.3mV then 1:20 would be preferable, and into a 47k mm stage would give about 118 ohm load, so should be fine. If the Lundahl's are wired :5 or :10 it would possibly explain the lack of gain but worth checking with them. I use similar spec cart 0.28mV/3.8ohm, into SUT Allnic H3000, and right now Leonard Cohen's last LP is on 10 on the 080 and sounding fabulous, but sad lol..

    CR8's are 4 ohm and 89db. I have to find out about Lundhal transformers. Might try and upgrade to silver at same time.
