[1] The FX-R II is a "lumped" mass design (low Mass), "But don't moving coils need a higher mass arm?" What they need is not "higher mass", it is "optimum" mass. Achieving this with FX-R is simple: Add mass to the headblock to match to the cartridge.
[2] ABEC scale is an industry accepted standard for the tolerances of precision bearing ball. ABEC 7 = Class 4 (ISO 492), Eccentricity (roundness) of the track in the inner ring - ABEC 7 =  0.0025mm (0.000098")
