Telefunken v77 60db or 80db

I've regularly read the v77 can have a max output of 80db but I also heard 60db is max. Can someone clarify this?

The v77 is standard 40db.
The 60db is gained (pun intended) by connecting pins 4 on the tuchel, if I'm correct. Or by installing a resistor. Which of these options is the best? Is there a specific way to achieve the 80db?

After talking to some people I'm getting convinced the max output is 60 db.
Don't know where people get the idea from that it's 80. Perhaps just parroting?
The max gain of the V77 is +60dB
The max gain of the V78 is +70dB
The max gain of the V76 is +76dB

I have a Marquette Audio racked pair of siemens v77. Max gain is 60, gain selections are 40/50/60 on mine...just keep some pads handy.
