A standard 47k load shows up as 52ohm at the DL-103R
Changing it to 62k will change the load @ the DL-103R to 67ohms.
Will the change from 52 to 67 ohms change the perceived
sound of the 103r? In what way? To what degree?
The short answer is not much. the longer answer depends on how
well the transformer is matched to 47K in the first place, and whether
itis zobelled on the secondary side for 47k matching. If zobelled then
the change from 47K to 62K will have less effect then not zobelled.
It will slightly, and I mean slightly, change the treble balance.
As i said you can order the phono stage with 62K and fit 220K
to the SUT outputs so its completely a none issue, in reality
I do not think the 220k's are necessary but there is nothing
stopping you trying them.
Normal loading for a active MC stage would be 100 ohms.
The discussion about differences is essentially nonsense,
yes they are there, but not to any degree that matters.
