From the review, it sounds like an incredible arm for the money. I am fascinated by his turntable as well. Did you consider it? Know it's price?

Carl, I have no experience with that arm, nor does anyone that I know. It looks very interesting, but I cannot offer any meaningful opinion on the performance.
Also, the Nottingham doesn't have terribly noticeable cogging(IMO), and it is a very good table. A DC motor would help it, I'm sure. But I still like my Teres best, in that price category.
When I was researching a new turntable - i have still not made up my mind (not having the money helps a lot) I got the following response from Carlo ..... and i quote
"The CM 2A,with tonearm,graphite mat and clamp cost is Euro 3500,00 excluded shipment and taxes.The weight with 4 wood boxes is 75 Kg.The wait time is more than six months,because i have a lot of orders,and I work alone.An earnest of 500 Euro is necessary for order confirmation and matr. number assignment."
i am not sure of euro/dollar rate of exchange, but it looks like serious value for money to me - the only trouble is finding out good reviews private or otherwise
The CM2 is very expensive. The CM1 arm, which is less than a grand US, was given a huge thumbs up from the TNT Audio people. That is the arm I contact Mr Morsiani about. This arm and the Morch appear to be good units for either the Scheu or the Teres. The Morch has interchangeable arm tubes, though; that is a huge advantage. But, it is quite a bit more money new. Used prices on the Morch are attractive; one for 750/BO with yellow wand right now.
