High compliance ceramic cartridges

As per subject kind of want to try one just for fun. I noticed a subset of ceramic cartridges have great specifications in terms of compliance, tracking force, and frequency range. Would like to install one on my turntable for fun. If I can get 200 or 300mV from a cartridge it also relaxes the requirements for a low noise phono stage and I could use a 6J7 as I have long wanted to try.

The ones which interest me are the sonotone 9T, and similar. There also appears to be a number of great spec ceramics which were made for the zenith micro touch and some high end RCA consoles. Has anyone tried these on a good turntable? By the looks of the specs some good sound should be possible...

Does anyone on here have any experience to share on the use of such cartridges ?
