My vinyl system is a Garrard 401 refurbished by Loricraft and mounted in their heavy duty plinth.
I have a Rega RB 300 arm and a Dynavector 17D2 cartridge. I think the arm is the weak link in my set up.
I am seeking to up grade up and intend to throw most of my money on the Naim hardware such as supercaps/ XPS's etc but I have been scanning the ads for a second hand arm in good condition.
I have been looking for either an Aro, SME V or IV. There as hardly been anything around recently but I have just noticed a SME 309 up for sale.
I am unfamiliar with this model, do any of you know anything about it, how does it compare with the other models and is it worth going for.
Alternatively should I be patient and keep searching for the others ?
Many thanks in advance for any comments
