I've moved this to analog source where the cartridge experts live, and edited the name to make the question asked clear.

Can you tell us what cartridge you are asking about?

Normally I use // to imply the thevenin equivalent of two resistors in parallel. Not sure what the intent is here though. Could mean 1.2K to 2.7K load resistance range?

Was this stated concerning a cartridge or a preamp? The most common cartridge loading
is either 100 ohms or 47k ohms.

Hi,

For parallel "||" is somewhat clearer than "//".

Quote the context in which it was used, that might
help. Seems to be in the area of loading HOMC's.

rgds, sreten.
