Seasoned reviewer, Mr Marshall Nack from Positive Feedback wrote a very nice review of the PH-77. In addition to praising the special sonic character, Mr Nack also enjoyed the PH-77 with old and new records through the appropriate curves and remarked,
"I wish life were easy and I could forget about RIAA curves. But to really hear Franz von Suppe Overtures (London CS 6146, original Blueback LP), you need the Decca/FFSS RIAA equalization curve. How do I know this? Because I had the PH-77 set to standard RIAA, and von Suppe was not making it."
