I have a Technics SP-15 with an Audio-Technica arm, and it works well. However, I was just given a nice used SME 3009/Series 2 "improved" arm, and I would like to use it on this turntable. Has anyone here set one up this way, and will I need to order the auxiliary spacer to raise the arm?
Note to the moderators: Feel free to move this to the phonograph forum, if it may fit better there.

I have a friend who has this set-up. I understand that his SME arm is a limited-production 10" version which can play 16" transcriptions. He uses a Stanton 681EEE cartridge with it. He made the plinth from kitchen chopping block stock. I believe his arm had enough range in it's height adjustment so as not to need a spacer but his turntable is actually sunk down into the plinth a bit.
