I could be wrong but I believe the photo on the Needledoctor site is the wrong photo (could be wrong specs as well) and is actually photo of the less expensive AS-212S.

Thanks, folks, yes you are correct, this is what it turned out to be.
Diggory - how is your AS212S - do you like it? Any comparison thoughts to the ortofon RS-212D dynamic version or Jelco 750DB? I know that RS212D sells higher but I am not shure which portion of that price is built based upon just the brand name.
Anatoliy, yes i like the AS212S very much. I've got it mounted on an SME Model 10 turntable with a Phase Tech P3 Alexandrite cartridge. I've used a SME IV arm on the table before but that had a different cartridge so really a comparison would be moot.
I can't fault the arm and have no desire to replace it with anything. I did get the heavier counterweight to make the Phase Tech cartridge work at its best as it has a low compliance .
