Hoping some expert out there could help me with a knowledge deficit. How does one determine what the compliance of a particular cartridge is, and likewise a particular tonearm. What is the process.
I once added to a discussion on a Nagaoka MM cartridge that I owned and thought better than my Sumiko Celebration MC cartridge and was blasted for misleading readers because having an SME 3009 tonearm, with its' inherrent compliance (whatever that is), that of course the Nagaoka would sound better than the Sumiko. Both cartridges look to be about the same size and weight, both have about the same vertical tracking force, so what do I measure to know these things?
