    Yes, me too. Beautiful Swiss engineering of the old school - it was favourably reviewed in HFN many years ago.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Completely overpriced IMO but I agree the arm is very good. It was made for Decca by the British instrument maker Reid & Sigrist (who after WW II made a copy of the Leica III fitted with a Taylor, Taylor and Hobson lens, that many believe was better than the original.) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reid_and_Sigrist

    I have one and have had success pairing it with a Decca cartridge (Decca Mk.VI).

    Is the Matisse really that good or this is more like collectable item? This is getting into serious money territory. Was tempted to try but I think not at that price.
