Thanks Ron. Where you able to listen to the two SME arms on that AF3? If so, any differences?

Too bad. I've heard so many times that the older SME 3012 is better than the new V-12, particularly in the bass, that I was curious about how these two arms sounded in a direct comparison. Interestingly, that actually looks like a 9" 3009.

That’s the M2-9R, 3009-R’s replacement.

Thanks David. I also read that SME will be producing the 3012, or some variant, again.
