ORTOFON SMG 212

...such a simple design...

Simply the workhorse of vintage Ortofon tonearms...the first impression was a sense of naturalness and musicality that exudes from all over the room...the control is excellent and the dynamic impresses me. Only few tonearms offer such a wonderful sound from my beloved SPU...despite the years, this SMG212 is an excellent tonearm and, perhaps, still the ideal match for the Ortofon SPU and Thorens TD124 turntable.

In the audio world...

...every single component of a system is sometimes a work of art... it takes the current and turns into sound...
Each component of each company is a work in itself. A bit like the paintings in previous centuries.
The best of art was made in turntables...almost 100 years of history...
In my humble opinion, to go forward you have to go back...

For some years the turntable has returned to the masses and in the phase of going back we are about half 80. It takes some time and we will arrive at the beginning of the 60s...
In the picture a J.C. Verdier la Platine.
As beautiful as Leonardo's Mona Lisa.
