It works!
Missing some dumb lateral tone arm weight probably costs $50 on the bay.

Quality parts indeed. I had the 1700 receiver, C26 pre and MC240 tube. I sold them all but regret selling the MC240. I had become a hoarder... also many Sansuis, quality Sonys and tube amplifiers.

I downsized. Now I have only, Sony 6060F (great receiver), the neat little Sansui 800 receiver and a silver faced Yamaha HTR.

The MC240 is still bugging me and I intend to satisfy the urge.

However I am on my guard against equipment addiction.
Still, McIntosh deals should be hard to resist.

BTW congratulation Rajoo!

It counterbalances the lateral offset mass of the head plus cartridge. Having the turntable perfectly level should be adequate without.
