And given that I only have a heavily modded Rega RB250 with an Ortofon moving magnet 2MM blue or a Goldring 1042 I think we are splitting hairs a bit on this for my set-up I am just trying to get some views on where best to place which type of the three resistor choices on the phono 3S board.
The Blues man

Turntable Rega 3 custom RB250 with ortofon 2M Blue /other goldring 1042 /WD phono2 /WD CF pre custom converted /WD psu2 /home built JE Labs Single Ended 6SL7/KT66/Speakers Frugal horns Mk1s
Other turntables AR EB101/Thorns TD150mk2/Thorns TD160mk2
