    SME S2-R headshells are still in production and many vendors have them no need for counterfeits.

    I've purchased a few from 2Juki. I'm going to buy on from SME to check 2Juki's.

    Although with the level of counterfeiting going on these days, I'm probably not capable of telling the difference.

    Counterfeiters have better to forge than a few SME headshells - IMHO the demand of these shells is not enough to justify it. They would have to make also the Styrofoam box and the card box - usually easy to distinguish in cheap copies.

    If your shells and boxes look exactly as the detailed photos of the auction they should be originals - I compared them with one headshell supplied by SME and they look exactly the same - even the wires and connectors.
    DCS Vivaldi 2.0 stack, Soundlab A1 Px's while waiting for the XLF successor, EMT927, SME3012R, ARC Phono 3, Lamm ML1.2 Ref, Lamm L2ref, Stealth Dream speaker , Crystal Dreamline ICs, TA XL digital, TA XL gen V power cables, CenterStage footers and Nordost Qkore8's!

    I agree with you 100%. The Styrofoam is molded, not cut. Why would you go through the effort?
