Cash Converters - Park Meadows - Kensington

Onkyo Amp, DVD and full set of Polk audio speakers, I am also sure I saw the sub there, R8999.

I do not know the model number though but a simple phonecall to them can reveal this.

Hope this helps someone

^--- Could be wrong, but I think that guy had it on gumtree for most of the year.

SME III is a great arm, just keep in mind it's the 'S' model - not as easy to adjust as the 'full spec' III

One of the lightest arms ever made; obviously it prefers high (max!) compliance carts (MM), AND it's better suited to non-idlers.

If you plan to run the MC cart on it, oil 'damper' is essential. Original dampers were supplied with +- 50000cps silicone fluid and 3 types of 'paddle'.
In order to match the stiff suspension of most MC carts, the largest of the paddles would be required and for the stiffest of the MCs, even a more viscous fluid - 75-80000cps.

The design is however faultless. It is much better to dampen the movement of the arm with viscosity than by simply adding weight.

I think you may be right, it has been around a while. Thanks for the info, I wasn't planning on buying it but the brain food is greatly appreciated.

Looks almost home made doesn't it? Also, isn't that an RB300 arm?
