    It's really a very handsome arm.

    Yup, right up my alleyway (as I love high quality, hand-built bespoke equipment), and it's a superb match for low-compliance MCs, specially SPUs!

    The combo of the Schick arm on that drop-dead gorgeous Sony, made it a no-brainer winner, IMO. For me, both Sacha's and your T/T are equally lovely, in different ways, but I prefer his arm.

    Not a big fan of modern SMEs, sorry. I prefer their older stuff, such as the 3012 or the modern equivalent M2-12R (or their 9-inch counterparts), which I think has sadly now been discontinued:

    I've also always preferred the look of classic 'J-shaped' Jap detachable headshell arms, in preference to the 'straight' design/look. Just a personal thing... *BUT* - aesthetically the SME suits the lines on your T/T perfectly, and so taken as a whole it looks superb!

    You should give a Schick a go sometime, as I suspect you'd LOVE how it sounds, which is quite different from the SME.

    I couldn't agree more. The TTS3000 and Schick are a gorgeous combination. Very elegant and understated.

    Thanks for the kind comments Marco. Much appreciated. I get where you're coming from with regard to the later SMEs. I've got an open mind on the subject but I must tell you the TTS-8000 and V-12 are a superb combination sonically and deliver the sound I'm after. That said, I've also got a phonomac fettled SP10 cut for a 12" SME, so the 3012 and M2-12R are on my watchlist. Unfortunately, until I find a job, I doubt I'll be making any significant purchases.

    I think the Schick has just made it to the top of the list in preference to the 3012 or M2-12R. Thanks for that.

    No worries, mate. The Schick would work a treat on the SP10. Then fit one of these to it: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HIGHPHONI...4f4a%7Ciid%3A1

    *Trust me*, it'll sound stunning!!

    I don't doubt it but I've got a Kiseki Purpleheart sitting idle so I'll probably use that initially.
