FINANCE INFORMATION

SME Turntables At Fanthorpes

SME turntables are built by the Scale Model Equipment Company. The company was formed in 1946 by Alastair Robertson-Aikman to make models and detailed parts for the model engineering trade. However, in 1959 Alastair required a tonearm arm of his own and designed a prototype to critical acclaim, so in September of 1959 the company was re-branded to SME. Its first precision tonearm went into production comprising of individually machined components. The SME tonearms are seen as iconic within the industry.

Now with over 50 years experience of making tonearms SME still manufacture in house and are considered the leaders in making quality, precision tonearms and turntables.
