I had an Oracle Alexandria with that Prelude tonearm. I was not a fan of it. I recall that I replaced with the some type of SME (Series III? ...one of the lightweight ones).
Honestly, you have an SL1200mk2 with an SME 3009. Why did you feel the need to upgrade? That sounds like a superior setup to me. The SL1200 will hold its own and has a much torquier motor. The Oracles are a bit finicky to setup and keep running correctly. I wish I had never sold my 1200mk2. I wish I had seen this thread a few weeks ago.
My brother has a Delphi, but it is a much later version, like a Mk4 or something. It is still finicky and I prefer my stable as a rock VPI.
