SME M2-9R Tonearm

The SME M2-9R Tonearm is available for demonstration in our Hull store by request.

The standard SME M2 series comes with a straight arm, however the SME M2-9R follows in the style of the older 3009 series with a J shaped arm. Although looking similar to the 3009, the M2-9R tonearm components differ greatly. The SME M2-9R Tonearm tube is made of stainless steel and the counterweights are made using tungsten. Internally the wiring is Silver Litz cable. This is connected to a pair of RCA sockets mounted at the side of the base, with a grounding screw on the opposite side.

Setting up the M2-9R is no different to other SME tonearms. Tracking alignment is adjusted with a sliding bedplate (an alignment protractor is provided), this arm also boasts an easy to grip thumbwheel to adjust the arm height (VTA). The pillar clamp screw must be slightly loosened and then the thumbwheel can be moved to give very accurate fine tuning of the VTA. Once positioned correctly the pillar clamp should be retightened.

The M2-9R tonearm double draw-pin detachable headshell allows you to easily remove it from the arm without disturbing cartridge or wiring.

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.
