Very good

Remove the mains power supply plug from the back panel of the phono stage.
Remove the screws that secure the unit lid, these are accessible from the underside of the enclosure, then slide the lid off from the rear of the unit.
Establish the correct loading for your cartridge. E.g. Recommended load and output may be expressed as follows: MM = 47K (load) 4Mv (output) Refer to the manufactures specification sheet supplied with your cartridge for this information. Some experimentation with different values may however prove beneficial in many systems.
Locate the DIL switches and set the correct values, set according to the following table, put the switches into the ON position for the value required. The four switches for adjusting the load are coloured Red, and the two gain switches are Blue.
 
Switch layout:
 
*********  *********    *********   *********
* LOAD *   * LOAD *     * LOAD *   * LOAD *
*********   *********    *********   *********

 

 
*********          *********
* GAIN *           * GAIN *
*********          *********
 
 
Selecting the correct cartridge gain:
