Please enlighten. Looking at the cartridge database, the compliance figures for the Dynavectors are all less than 20x10E-6, with most of them in the 10 to 15x10E-6 range, which I am lead to believe is considered low to medium compliance. Both of the DV carts the OP is considering have lower compliance than any of the Clearaudio MM's, which all have a compliance of 15x10E-6.
If I am mistaken, it won't be the first time.
The Japanese manufacturers measure compliance at 100Hz where the rest of the world measures it at 10Hz.
This makes that specification unusable for arm resonance calculations. The resonance at 10Hz will be between 1.5 and 2 times the 100Hz value (most likely).
Similar problems with other Japanese manufacturers... eg: Denon.
