The SME Series III is one of the best value tonearm, the company has gotten a Design Council Award back in 1978. This beautiful looking and a great sounding arm is one of the most flexible tonearms around.currently I have mounted it on AR ES-1 turntable, I have a separated ad running for the arm and turntable together, if you desire you can buy both of them at $699.00 or individually. The tonearm is in excellent condition, I have the original book with all the accessories, extra weighs, mounting template and the packing box for secure shipping. The tube shell that goes with this arm is Titanium Nitride version. The connecting audio cable in this arm is with regular RCA jack, therefore you can choose your own cable, this way you can match the right cable. to the cartridge you are using.
