I don't know if I am stating the obvious here,,I have the slightly later version of the same turntable..The Kenwood KD 1070..I have a few headshells of differing mass..If you put on one of the ADC headshells,,the mass can be taken down quite a bit...The Technics headshell is quite low mass too..The actual Kenwood headshell is quite high mass I believe..
From my research,,that sounds a bit of a posh way to put things..
From my findings,,reading different stuff on the internet,,the arm mass without headshell is 5.5 grams..
So running the Kenwood arm with an ADC headshell you get 5.5 plus 7.6 grams,,so you then have a 13 gram arm.Just over a gram heavier than a Rega RB250,,but near the same figure..
The Denon DL110 seems to be higher compliance than stated from reports I have read..But it acts like it is below 20 cu the way it actually acts on tonearms..It works way better on the 9.4 gram headshell than it does on the 7.6 gram ADC one..
This is from another recent thread...
"""""""""""Sumiko 11.4 gms without finger lift.. + Audio Technica AT95e 5.7 gms
Altai headshell 9.4 gms + Denon DL110 4.8gms,,I have removed the flip down stylus guard
ADC 7.6 gms + Shure M97xe 6.6 gms,,running with stabiliser brush engaged.
From what I can read it seems the arm without headshell is 5.5 gms approx..I usuakky add a touch more on for cartridge screws,,
AT 95e plus headshell etc..call it 23 gms..
Denon DL110 + hs call it 20gms
Shure M97xe...+ HS a bit over 20gms
As for the compliances,,there may be all types of argument,,but I would say listed low to high..AT95e,,,DL110,,,M97xe.."""""""""""
Also an excuse to post a picture of the KD1070,,really great sounding and well made turntable..
