I have seen reports in the British press that the SME is not a good match for the LP-12. I would investigate the Ekos, Naim ARO, Morch, or the Graham 2.0 as more viable choices for the Linn. As for myself, I'd love to put a Graham on my LP-12. As for cartridges, I can't speak highly enough of the Benz LO.4 I'm currently using (that is, if your system is MC capable). It's perhaps the best value cartridge Benz makes. Others on the site should echo the praises of the L0.4. Good luck in you upgrading!
