Don't use it on stereo records as it has no vertical compliance.

You also might be able to grab a Pickering NP/AC/Stanton 400 for cheap. it specs similar to the GE but is stereo, and won't ruin stereo records.
Sounds like an awesome setup, have you got a photo? Those tonearms are going up in value, too.
