I"m leaning toward the 750. They're being discounted in Canada more that I can find in the US... 12" at around $550. Would anyone pick the SME 3009 over a new Jelco?
Good advice, Johnny. My cartridge collection that might go on this arm include a Dynavector 10x5, a Blackbird, and a Quintet Blue. The Dyna and Sumiko are 12x10*-6 and the Quintet is 15. The Jelco 750L eff. mass is 11g, the Jelco750E (10") is more at 13.25. THe SME series II is 12.5. In the series II Improved mass drops to 6.5, which should work on the blackbird but not a good match for the others.
Since I own the 10 inch Jelco 750E I've done tons of research on effective mass and cartridge matching.....For some ridic reason there is nothing definitive on its effective mass and "opinions" are all over the map. I've seen figures from 13g to 22g. The consensus seems to be it is on the heavier side, closer to 22g, and that it performs best with heavier and stiffer MC carts. Hundreds of accounts out there about how well the Denon 103R works on it.The 13g you quote puts it in the medium mass camp of most common modern arms: Rega and all its variants, Ittok, Kuzma, etc. Are you sure of that figure? Source?PS: I'm a bit confused.....how can the 12" L be heavier than the 10" E?
