SME announce price increase

I've just read that they are to increase the price of their turntables between 15% - 25% & their tonearms between 23% - 32%.
Quite substantial increases...

Nothing new, this has been happening for years now. Many manufacturers will change the model's name though, to help hide the price increase. Of course the newer model is always better. ;^)
Interesting strategy.  GPB has declined 25% against USD over two years and SME prices rise 25% in USD.  That's one hefty increase in margins!
New ownership.
