the MkII

was not as high compliance as other models if I understand correctly. The cartridge database over at VE has the dynamic compliance coefficient at 40, which is high but not 65 like the higher compliance model. I have a mk II that I've put on a bunch of different medium mass arms and it sounded great on all of them with no tracking issues. I agree that the math doesn't entirely add up but proof is in the pudding. I've had other medium to high compliance carts on the same arms that had noticeable resonances and tracking issues. Go figure. My dad has (or perhaps had) one on a Rega 250 and it also sounds/functions great. Its a great cart and about as good as you can get in MM, at least from what I've heard.
