    My SME V has been fettled by Johnny and has the Kondo silver wire and is without a doubt the best arm I've ever owned or used.
    It sounds dynamic, big and bold, wonderfully open with stunning bass.

    Just recently bought a Hana SL cartridge and am very happy with this, marvellous.

    We've gone on holiday by mistake !

    I've recently heard from a reputable source that SME may in fact be in some difficulty due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the fear is the company may not survive!!

    As the late Colonel Sanders once said
    "I'm too drunk to taste this chicken!!"
