My SME IV works really well on the Townshend Elite II. It has a paddle fitted for the silicon trough. Tight bass which goes nice and low. I was surprised when I first got it because it will track just about anything. As someone from an engineering background, I can appreciate the quality of the design. A lot of R&D must have gone into it. A lot of thought has gone into the setting-up, which is very user friendly. As for me upgrading, there is simply no need. Everything else would have to go first.
I heard some history that huge resources were invested in the development of the V. Can anyone shed any light on that?
