    On my restored Akai AM-2800, there is a slider switch on the back for setting the phono 2 impedance.
    choices are 100K, 47K and 33K -what is the average normal setting for something basic like a shure M95?
    is this cartridge only related? looks like it.

    The slider switch just selects a different resistor, you can custome your own if it's not one of the provided values 100k, 47k, 33k
    however it will only make a minor difference.
