The SME M2-12R is THE tonearm for fans of the famed Ortofon SPUs, which are known for their extremely coherent presentation and excellent timing. It is one of the most versatile tonearms on the market: apart from being the best-designed tonearm for SPUs (which are the idler-wheel drives of the cartridge world specializing in energy and cohesiveness with lots of models available), it has the counterweights necessary for both SPUs and stone-bodied extra-heavy cartridges. It also ushers in a whole world of fun via headshells, available in all sorts of ingenious designs. The SME sled allows for easily-achieved perfect geometry. The weight can be reduced for lighter cartridges as well. In my experience, having mounted several original and improved SME 3012s, the M2-12R has superior bearings, VTA arrangements and wiring.

The SME M2-12R tonearm included in this sale is used but in good condition with just a few tiny marks near the tonearm rest. It includes the box, all papers, instruction manual, headshell, original cable, screws and bolts.  It currently retails for $4695.00 USD new, and is very difficult to find used. I have been shipping around the world with no complaints since 2004. Buyer pays actual cost of shipping.
