Marcus from Germany has for some time owned a SMD Plinth but recently added a new armboard to incorporate a SME M2-12R. Here is what Marcus had to say: -
Thank you very much for the armboard. I have fit it to my plinth and it sounded very good.
I have realized a very great british combination with Garrard 301, SME M2R12, Croft preamp. Paired with Denon DL 103 in Lignolab Bronze case and Denon step up transformer on a Lignolab TT100 table. It´s sounded fanatstic to my ears. Thank you very much for your solutions!"
It looks great and with the kit Marcus has I am sure it sounds as good as it looks.
