Well I am shocked, just been on to the SME website looking for arms, nothing, went into news, and they have announced that with immediate effect that they will no longer be selling arms except with their own turntables . Bob

Think about it it - simple - no middlemen = more profit.

So, a turntable with arm for well over 10000, or an arm for about 2500 .

Yes, I had seen this elsewhere. I suppose that with the increased interest in vinyl, they are struggling to meet demand. If they want to keep everything in house (which SME probably do) something has got to give. Who are they going to keep happy, people who want an arm or people who want a complete deck?

Tis a shame though. Not that I could afford a new series 5!

If you want an arm, Dave at MCRU can get you one.
