SME 3009 Series III Haters
SME III, the most elegant and beautiful tonearm in the world, and the finest and best looking design they ever did. And the technically finest pivot arm ever created. The secret lies in damping, quite literally. Large kinda slightly loose yet very...

Vinyl/TT Gurus Chime in! Cartridge Decision: Rework My old Sumiko or get a new cartridge?
