    There are some who think the perforated S2 headshells are insufficiently rigid for use with low compliance cartridges. True they are light in weight, but one can always add mass using lead shims or even a solid metal spacer. I'm happy to use them, but I also use more 'beefier' headshells: such as the Fidelity Research and the Audio Technica designs.
