LINN LVII in comparison with modern tonearm ??

Hello, how does a Linn ITTOK LVII compete with modern tonearm like SME 309 ?
Does a SME 309 blow it away or not really ??
I have a lot of respect for the LV-II tonearm. To me it sounds lively and musical. I wish they still made it. The Arm is dynamically balanced and the offset angle is right on the money. The bearings are superb ,the finish outstanding.
