They are compatible, but not logical. It rarely makes sense to spend more on the cartridge than on the TT. You can always get more sonic benefits by upgrading the TT, than by spending so much on a cartridge.

I absolutely disagree with twl that you can always get more sonic benefits form upgrading the turntable. From real music listening experience, it is clear that tt differences are subtle (important, I agree, but subtle) compared to the wide range of sonic signature (including arm/cartridge/table mismatches) differences you get from changing cartidges.
