Here is a link for anyone who may wish to tinker and explore what is possible, or simply check and calculate
cartridge loading.

Another good one that's loaded with useful info:

Very nice article Toobluvr. Thanks for posting it. I do have a couple of quick comments that I
think will help some.

1. Although photo 1D appears flatter, it actually has almost as much slope as photo 1A. I had
the same misconception when I performed some testing years ago. When I expanded the
vertical of 1D to match 1A on my Tektronix scope, the two slopes were close. Just my observation.

2. For those who wish to minimize the ringing, and don't know what capacitance to use/order, the value
will be in the low pf (uuf) range. This means probably a polystryene type. Just throwing out a value,
maybe a 100pf. Could be much more or less depending upon the ringing frequency.

cheers
