Default I have a Connoisseur BD2 as well...

none of them came with an arm. What arm do you have (I believe if it has a Sugden arm than it was a BD1)...

planet10, who hangs out mostly on the fullrange forum may have an idea, because he's older than stone....but I also think he sold these when they may have been new or "newly used". If the motor works, keep it....

The standard arm with the BD2 was the SAU2. BD1 = BD2 without arm.

The SAU2 is pretty decent, I quite liked it and it works well with modest
compliance cartridges, Audio Technica AT110E or AT95E a good choice.
(Grado's should also work well, if you like the Grado presentation.)
