And then came SPU (and winter).
I have a Meister Silver, for years now. Technically this should be a match to the heavy Wilking tonearm. So decided to take it out of its protective environment, it's tondose, in good German. Like all SPU's it has a hunchback, so at first I had to improvise with small spacers. Not ideal but good enough to get an idea. And a good match it is! 
Wilking offered to make me a fingerlift for the SPU and it now really sings!
