From the Absolute Sound 2012 Buyer's Guide which reviewed the SME 20/3 which is a big step down in price andfrom the 20/12:
"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 with this 20/12. This is a very new model from SME, and they practically never come up on the secondary market at a big discount. Great opportunity to own one a current model reference grade turntable from one of the world's most respected names in analog for clost to HALF PRICE!
Good luck, and thanks for looking!
