Recommended tracking force is 2g. I think a regular mid-mass tonearm would be ideal. I'm simplifying but once you get to around 1.25g you should consider a low-mass tonearm. Dynamic compliance is 10×10-6cm/dyne, but that is Japanese standard so *maybe* around 15 for a calculator such as the one on vinyl engine? Someone else can confirm. Plus Audio-Technica says that they lowered the mass by shortening the cantilever. That may be why it doesn't need lower tracking force.Thanks folks, an At33ptg/ii has been on my list for a while. Will probably use it with a SUT.
Bit of a rare beast, but does anyone here have experience of strain-gauge carts such as the Win-Labs or Panasonic CD4 carts (EPC 451 onwards). These with a microline stylus would surely have very low cantelever mass?
And no experience with strain-gauge. Hope we get a measurement.
