RE: Heads Up!

I too have a Fidelity Research FR-54 arm on my turntable (Sony 2251). It's a very light arm with great bearings. Chicks dig it. It would seem to be incongruous to use an approximately 1/2 ounce headshell on such a nimble arm. Then, there's the issue of the counterweight position. The result is that a great, light arm is turned into a heavy, slow-moving arm reminscent of 1950s/60s console systems, and contributing to faster record groove wear.

Maybe it's just me.
