Zyx R-100-02
Phonostage: Phonomena+BPSU
load: tried 121, 150, but 100 ohms seems to be the match with the cart & arm combo

Zyx is a light cart compared with a Dynavector, thus a heavy arm is preferred;
my sub-arm now is light compared to my previous one so load combinations were experimented on until i got to the 100 ohm load (which incidentally was the minimum for this cart)

capacitance: 200pF
capacitance supposedly had no effect on MCs, but not on this one

gain: 57.5dB
i tried 50db and 60 dB, but 57.5 seems to be more appropriate for my system; the preamp can handle additional gain, if needed.

arm is perfectly parallel, as defined by the spirit level

VTF: 2.00g, as recommended by Zyx
i have tried the maximum recommendation of 2.50g but SQ wasn't as good as the 2.00g... the arm has a lot to do with the cart's resolution ;-)

I will have to check on my technical archives as to the numbers but what I can be sure of is that the Koet-SUT has a perfect impedance match for the Koetsu cartidge, and the gain is also designed perfectly for it.

Just found my info sheet. Inasmuch as the KoetSUT is connected to the MM input, the MM stage should be set at the 47K ohm load. That would be the loading.

For my Koetsu Rosewood Signature, I use the ff:

VTF: 1.90g
Load: 100 ohms
VTA: tail down on vocals and acoustic music, parallel on all other types of music.
Anti-skate: technically with the linear arm there is none but I maintain the level of he arm so that a blank record is deadlocked.
