RE: My point -

Well, heck, if it's that damn heavy, I'm gonna throw it in the trash.

I think it's light, and that's what counts. ;) Yeah, I know there's weightless arms out there for a premium price. But I picked up this gently-used TT/arm combo back in 1977/78 for something like $50, and I'm still happy with it. All's I know is that, if I look at it cross-eyed, it'll skip a groove, and if I don't have a decent grip on the fingerlift thingy, it'll bounce right out of my hand and go skipping across the record and I'll have to get my spare stylus.

Still, a half-ounce headshell?!

Anyway, a moment ago I had some inertia. Now I'm in a stationary orbit. (That's a physics joke. Made it up all by myself.)

Edit: Btw, I have a digital scale. It says I weigh 178. Fortunately, the digital scale at my doctor's office says I weigh 174. I'm going to the post office today, and might take my headshell with me.
