The latest version of this legendary and world class turntable needs no introduction. Fresh trade on absolutely pristine condition 20/12 means you can save 50% and own this brand new model for 10% dealer cost. These don't come up often, so this is an ideal opportunity for an SME buyer who wants the 20/12 but cannot afford to pay anywhere near retail. Also available at similar savings is 6 month old SME V-12 arm.
Condition is absolutely a 10/10, not the slightest scratch, mark, or blemish anywhere to be found. We are putting a 1 year shop warranty on this flawless unit against defects in manufacturing or workmanship. We are a well established high end shop with a major focus on analog. We sell many of the world's finest analog products from Soulution, Ypsilon, Transrotor, Graham, Air Tight, Lyra, Shelter, Einstein, BMC, Rega, and Accuphase.
From the Absolute Sound 2012 Buyer's Guide which reviewed the SME 20/3 which is a big step down from the 20/12:
"The model 20/3 with the SME V (not the 12 inch version though) tonearm, stability, control, and neutrality triangulate the 20's virtues in to an extraordinary impression of sheer FOUNDATION: things rooted, solid, grounded, staying put unless they're meant to move, in which case they do so without ambiguity, vagary, or uncertainty. "
"State of the art life, lifelikeness, and deep, deep background blackness, which no doubt helps account for the huge dynamic range. Parts, fit, finish, precision of execution are to SME's standards - need anything more to be said?"

Reasonable offers (i.e. split shipping, PayPal, slight price break, etc.) will be considered, lowballers will be politely ignored. Original boxes, manuals, and factory packaging included both for the model 20 and the V12 tonearm. Great turntable, perfect condition, ridiculous price, and matching SME V-12. It doesn't get much better than that, thanks for looking!
