    Cool. Where did you buy?
    And.... how was the setup, how is the use, how is the sound?

      Hi Tim.

      I bought it locally in Sydney, so was able to drive and pick it up. The gentleman gave me a quick run down on setup etc, so that was invaluable.

      Sounds excellent considering the relative cheap price. Its the best my SPU Classic GM-E has sounded. relaxed but detailed at the same time. Seems the hype may be justified.

      More listening to come and later with a more modern cartridge to give a better idea of how the arm sounds. I think I will now sell my Graham Phantom that was on my SME mount before the 3012-R came along.

        tima you can go on the SME’s website and the original manual is still available. There is a lot to learn in the manual. When everything is ok this is a wonderfull sounding arm. It presents music the way you don’t think to sound anymore (until the record is over 😀).

            Thanks for the information about the manual. Forgive me but I don't understand the other part.

              tima sorry for my bad English : I meant that with this arm, when you listen music, your mind don’t think easyly about analyzing the sound. Music becomes your first preoccupation.

                Ah, now i understand. Thanks. Yes, I prefer a system that does not make me think about it.

              I read somewhere that SME was about to reissue their old 3012-R. I asked them directly the question and they said they had « no plan » for such a thing .
