    I don't know if any are in the US yet. I have had the standard 4Point here since early on and have sold and installed quite a few. Set up on the new Stabi XL DC 'table, it could be really something.

    I don't 'get' a 14" arm and with an effective mass of 19g, how many carts will actually work with it?

    I created that meme in your honor, you get full credit. In fact, you can use it as your own anytime you want.

    FWIW I asked Jaime Monroy of Pelotone, the Koetsu distributor, about this, especially with regard to the stone body cartridges. He feels the extra 5g of effective mass would be a sonic benefit for sure with the stone bodies, saying they tend to prefer higher mass arms.

    I presume the new Kuzma line will.
