Like I said,...

I don't go for equal crosstalk, either. For one thing, the best you can do is equalize crosstalk at the one test frequency, usually 1kHz. That doesn't mean you've achieved equality at other frequencies. I've never seen or played with the Foz, but I get the impression that it is designed to get the user to equalize crosstalk, but I certainly may be mistaken.

I agree with you on the importance of "tip alignment", but I would have guessed, and I always thought, that the reason most/many cartridges don't achieve optimal crosstalk numbers when the cantilever is perpendicular to the LP surface is due to off-axis orientation of the generator (coils and/or magnets) up inside the cartridge body. Which we cannot usually visualize directly.
