High output MC cartridges in general do not provide the sound finesse of a low output MC cartridge. You will miss out on the subtle sounds and nuances potentially available from your vinyl. As ever with the Devialet, you are making a compromise to get rid of the hiss. 

I have yet yet to send my hiss recording to Mathieu Pernot as he requested at the Oxford Audio event last month but will get it done soon. In the meantime, I’ll continue with my separate phonostage regardless of how ridiculous Mathieu considers my approach. I think what you said in another thread about the size of phonostages is correct. As much as I hope for a solution from Devialet, I believe the reality is that if your vinyl replay is important to you, an external phonostage is the best solution with step up transformers as a secondary option.

Of course, I am using a single D250. I have to acknowledge that vinyl through my friend @NickB ‘s D1000 system, it has a hiss level that is much more tolerable, infact inaudible from the listening position, but with two amps, that is to be expected.

Never the less, a £13,500 single integrated amplifier should have a hiss free phonostage regardless of the cartridge used. That it does not is for me a major disappointment.
Roon (lifetime) using qobuz with Devialet Air (I don’t like the sound of RAAT), Intel nuc, Synology NAS. Denon DP-80 turntable in bespoke CLD plinth, Audiomods Micrometer Series 6 (carbon fibre) arm with continuous silver wiring loom, Hana ML moving coil cartridge, Longdog Audio MCJ3 Phono stage. Both into Devialet 250 Pro C/I.

Try Soundsmith and be surprised. They are good.

I only have a modest Rega Carbon cartridge since LPs are low on my listening list.
This cartridge has an advertised output of 2.5mV at 1 KHz. I set the level to 3.5 mV after a bit of trial and error. Too low and it started to clip, too high and there was hiss. I also set the RIAA curve to 1953. This provides the best sounding recordings upon ripping with Vinyl Studio

I must have ripped about 300 LPs for friends. All are thrilled with the result.
