Hi Marco

The series II has no fluid damper. All the cartridges you mention will be a good mechanical match for a series II improved, fixed. Unfortunately i only have experience with the 1042 in this arm and it indeed sounds very good. The vinyl asylum is a good place to search for arm/cart compatibility.
