It would be much better to have a phono stage that offers loading value alteration.
that's possible with resistor value . changes in the circuits, right?

the Barney Oliver (the former head of HP engineering) amplifier manual describes how to adjust the phono stage for cartridges different than the one the stage was optimized for...
