Schiit Mani 2 and Loading Questions

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I just got my Schiit Mani 2 as a replacement for my Mani 1. I noticed that the highs were recessed and overshadowed by the low end to the point where I couldn't hear certain instruments very well and the vocals were really quiet. I decided to flip the Mani over and take a look at the 'Pf Loading' settings to see if I can change this. There happens to be one video recommending that for my cartridge I should crank up the settings to 200pf (Ortofon 2M Blue). When I did this, it seemed to have the opposite effect of the highs overpowering the low end and creating a harsh sound.


I think a reasonable setting would be between 100pf and 150pf, but I keep second guessing if these sound better or worse.

Any thoughts?

For context, my record player is a Fluance RT85 with a Ortofon 2M Blue and a Schiit Mani 2
