That's because compliance@100Hz has a completely different meaning, and is not intended to be used to evaluate lf resonance !
There is no 'ratio' that is applicable to convert. It varies significantly between cartridges, especially those with heavy or light damping.

Compliance@100Hz is widely misunderstood and misinterpreted. Check out Yosh's web pages for confirmation of how it's defined and what it means.
That's why, as in this case, there can sometimes be a poor match from rules of thumb and ratios, when trying to convert. Because there is no set relationship. Those ratios and rules will often be plain wrong, as it seems in this case.
I mean, think about it. If the purpose of compliance spec is to define lf resonant behaviour, why on earth would it be specified at 100Hz ? Compliance@100Hz is mostly defined by suspension damping, whereas compliance@10Hz is mostly defined by suspension spring. They are cousins, but not necessarily related in a well defined way.
Compliance@100Hz is not intended to be definitive as to 10Hz arm matching. And it isn't ! It has a completely seperate purpose.[/quote]
you really don't get it....
we already know that and know where to look for the info as well.
the point is that you just had to post an explanation
to prove how smart you are.
