- 1220mm (48”) D501 balanced audio lead. Engineered in the best camera quality with satin chrome finish
- Fluid damped lift/lower control
- Geometry optimised for Ø300mm (12”) LPs
- Low friction, fully shielded races for both axes
- Phono plugs and other contacts heavily gold plated
- Pressure die-cast magnesium headshell with unique collet
- Sliding base for tracking adjustment
- Thin-walled stainless steel tonearm with internal damping
- Thumbwheel height adjustment
- Traditional pattern anti-skate
The internally damped tonearm of highly polished stainless steel provides sparkling uncoloured reproduction. A unique single element balance system caters for cartridges weighing 5 to 12 grams. After balancing tracking force is applied by forward movement of the weight ensuring the lowest system inertia. The weight moves on a precision screw thread with backlash eliminator allowing exact setting of vertical tracking force.
The M2 shell is pressure die-cast in magnesium for lightness and rigidity.
A collet of ingenious design affords ‘one-piece’ rigidity and allows azimuthcorrection to be made before final tightening.
A fluid damper FD-M2 is an optional accessory. The normal slow passage of the arm across the record is unaffected but influences which would tend to produce over-rapidmotion are resisted by the flow characteristic of the fluid. It’s use is recommended with very low compliance cartridges or where there is a problem with external vibration such as a springing floor.
For serious audiophiles and vinyl lovers SME is the byword in excellence when it comes to pick-up arms. Arguably SME produce the finest precision turntable pick-up arms in the world both in terms of performance and construction. All manufacturing and processing is carried out in-house to ensure that the highest standards are maintained. Since 1959 SME has been designing, manufacturing and producing precision machined pick-up arms. Natural progression led them to create turntables as well which are produced using the same care, dedication and precision engineering. Such is their skill that they also have divisions producing precision parts for the aerospace, Formula 1 and medical sectors.
Famous the world over, SME are loved by audiophile and music enthusiasts who are looking for the best possible sound reproduction from their musical equipment. SME really are at the forefront of design and engineering and produce world beating turntables and pick-up arms.
