It's a good point. I wrote on my Accession MC review that as well as matching the recording characteristic, the switching is like a high quality treble control. Roughly compared to RIAA's -13.7dB at 10,000 Hertz 'British' offers about +2dB and Columbia -2dB, so the former is a slight mid/presence boost and a slight cut for the latter. I hope that helps but I suspect you'd worked that out already.

Great info, thank you!

I agree,
  I found the Accession (when I had it on loan), to be tremendously helpful for a few specific recordings. The box set of Karajan Beethoven symphonies with the Berlin Phil from the 60’s (his first Berlin set) went from dull and lacking dynamic impact to simply marvelous. The mono recording suddenly had space and definition, rhythmic drive and phrasing. Not a subtle change!
Next is an older Decca 10” (!) of Bohm and the Vienna Phil doing Schubert’s Unfinished. The same transformation. Wow. And finally, a set of Bach solo violin music played by Szeryng on DG. Interestingly, this set has just been reissued, and I wonder if it’s more conventional. Certainly the Accession helped bring out the timbrebof the violin in a way the standard RIAA didn’t.
