    2k is a lot of money but not when you compare it to the latest price hikes.

    Hi Peter,

    It works very well thanks - once the correct VTA was dialled in I found it to work with the TT brilliantly.
    Was hoping the 5 would take it to the next level.

    The later arms use a different supplier for the tubes having compared with I would certainly get the arm serviced, and having had many arms they do get tired after a while. If I had a 309 with aluminium I would no way change the tube but get the rest done. The big problem with sme arms I can really say no two sounded the same I have heard arms that are boring and dead and some nicely open with a great midrange. The series v is quite complicated in its build.

    A bit complicated then as with most hifi equipment. Do you happen to know when SME changed supplier of arm tubes? Just for my own record. If I keep the SME V, I will not get it serviced now, but may well do it in a few years so I am sure that the arm will be able to be with me to the end. I am 57, so another 20 years, I suppose, until I won't bother with vinyl any longer.

    Sitting on the plane back from Tenerife, I am very close to simply keeping the SME V. So if you are interested in this 2007 tonearm, get in touch.

    For 2000 - in a straight sale ...

    I will also order a complete new tonearm box (inner foam, inner box and despatch carton) at a cost of 142.00 new, so the arm can be safely shipped to the UK in it.

    So you will get a full funtioning SME series V tonearm, complete with the VTA key, HTA screw, alignment protractor and spindle bush, original manual + an extra copy of the manual and a complete SME V box (in three parts).

    I will only order the shipping box after a full payment has been made, so expect a short delay for SME UK to ship the box to me in Denmark and for me to ship the SME V in its new box to you.

    Payment - PayPal free/family or add 4%. In any event I should receive no less than 2000 into my PayPal account.
