Really great!
I've dreamed about a SME turntable. To me it may be the perfect turntable for quality without being overly fussy to use.


Fabulous equipment. Bravo.

One can never know unless being there, but those speakers appear space constricted.
I would push them out into the room more, and away from the side walls, a wee bit closer together.  Looks like a hot room with lots of reflective surface?

Rack in the middle with speakers so close looks like a deal breaker, sonic wise. Just observation- If it sounds great to YOU, you're done! Maybe one more G1 on the other side, 3 more for ultimo, audio nirvana.
