Wow, not much love for SME turntables on this site. I'm enjoying my 30/12A, especially with my new/old 3012R and vdH Master Signature. There aren't many of these with two arms. I do agree with someone's comment about the bifurcation of the market into less expensive and super expensive tables. It seems that SME is somewhere in the middle sound wise but also too expensive, so people are choosing other options at these prices. However, I hear from some dealers that SME produces and sells a relatively large number of tables, so someone is buying them. Perhaps fewer in the US.
