LOL. It's not pretty and it's loud. It's cheap though allowing you to put the extra money into the system. Best for single guys.

Speaking of vinyl cleaners... I absolutely adore mine....Fully automated, cleans like a dream and is absolutely quiet.

And my Avid Sequel SP got updated with the SME V finally...

Wow, that tonearm looks like something like a mini high-end German equatorial (telescope) mount...
 

Rather similar structures, they are (tonearms and equatorial mounts).

It is a work of art indeed. Another forumer commented it looked like a crane lifter! Probably the angle that the shot was taken.

Avid turntables are absolutely perfect with SME tonearms. The level of bass depth is absolutely stunning.

Speaking of crane lifters, it looks great on SME's own "oil rig" turntables.

 I had the SME 20a/V as my "last turntable" before ditching vinyl altogether - just when others started getting back to it confused_face%281%29.gif.

 

The engineering standard of these two units was unsurpassed. And perfect for those who like their high end systems to be compact and fuss free. 

 

The picture below is of a slightly later model from the web - no choice as I don't own it any more.

The 30 is one of the best sounding turntables in existence, so I'd imagine you enjoyed this.

One might come to the conclusion that high-end = vinyl from the last 3 pages.

I think it's fair to say that it's easier for vinyl rigs to LOOK more high end than digital. Some designers have run riot with their imagination. 

 

Cue lots picturesd of wild, wacky digital setups.... (I've always felt the 4 box Zanden CD setup looks rather cute, and the top Metronome suitably high end OTT)

 

In practice, vinyl probably still sounds better too - but my Nagra CDP is close enough for the convenience factor to win over.

I felt the pot needed a stir. I kid though. Digital front ends today definitely belong in the "true high end" category.
