RE: Cartridge, Headshell, Tonearm Match

The aim is to keep the resonance well above possible warp frequencies of a disk, and well below any possible low audio frequency engraved on the disk. The limits are commonly given as between about 7 Hz and 12 Hz. Thus John's calculation leaves you in safe territory. One of the Shure test records (Era V, I think--perhaps others) provides a test revealing a cartridge/arm's actual resonance.
