Steve, I agree with Jeff. The vdH Master Signature sounds really good on a 3012R tonearm. I happen to think it also sounds really good on my SME V-12. I think van den Hul uses the SME V for some testing, at least photos from him show the cartridge on a modern SME arm. I suspect you will be very pleased with the Master Signature on your 3012R and I look forward to reading your impressions.
now that we have the right size aluminum Tech Das mounting frame the rest will be hopefully a whole lot easier than before.
The plan is to move the ZYX to the 3010R
