Not a review as such just a few random thoughts:
I've lusted after one for as long as I can remember- and thanks to Dave and Jill atSound Hifi I've justyesterday recieved my brand new, made at the factory for me, please wait 5 weeks, try not to chew your arms off waiting, SME 20/2.
I already have an SME4 arm thats spent all it's life bolted onto my orbed up gyrodec. It didn't take long to unbolt it and put it in it's new home. The SME20 is a doddle to setup, just undo a few transit bolts, a bit of oil, etc. Build quality is superb, manuals, packing, tools all 1st rate, etc etc blah blah.... let's listen to it ffs!
Ok so, same arm/cart, same shelf, same cables, same everything but with the sme20.... 1st record on and...........
Holy Jebus !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
