Hey there from NC (by way of Austin, Chicago, et al)

Oh and you're already an honorary member here because you have a Fidelity Research FR-24. I think we all have one somewhere. Wonderful tonearm.
It's been a great tonearm, no doubt. Bonus that it doubles as my membership card!

Mine came with just one of the weights. For awhile, I would occasionally see someone offering fabricated sets on eBay. Haven't needed anything heavier or lighter, though I've been at the veeeeery end of the range once or twice. Maybe I should try to obtain some for completeness.
 
Nice gear, Lenco and Altec... get a thumbs up from Mr Ed. I too passed through Austin from 1982 to 2013
Thanks for sharing

Welcome, this place rules.

Born and raised South Austinite, live south of town now. Looks like you have excellent taste in gear.
 
Welcome aboard Watt! Really enjoyed reading about your system and the pictures. I can only imagine it is very musical. Is your listening friend an Italian Greyhound or Whippet? Reminds me of my listening buddy, Oliver. He was an Italian Greyhound. He had similar markings.

I had a lovely brass set made up by a Gent in Germany for nigh onto nothing. Lovely work, and he charges too little for them.
Let me know if you ever decide to get them. I can put you guys in touch.

Italian greyhound, though he's kinda big for the breed. (When we're out walking, people often think he's a whippet.) We adopted him about twelve years ago, and it's been truly great.
