SME Series V Tonearm

The SME Series V Tonearm is available for demonstration in our Hull store by request.

The SME Series V Tonearm is the flagship tonearm from SME. Taking almost four years of research and development the SME Series V is regarded as one of the worlds greatest audio products.

Instead of being made from multiple parts, the Series-V Tonearm is a one-piece die-casting in magnesium alloy comprising the head shell, tube and balance weight cantilever. This construction is 36% lighter and only 25% less stiff than commonly used aluminium, yet a magnesium arm of the same mass could be as much as 25% stiffer. Magnesium also has a high self-damping factor to dampen the tube's high-frequency resonance.

The internals were subject to the same level of scrutiny, resulting in internal wiring of specially developed silver litz, with each conductor having five insulated strands; whilst termination is done through high-quality linear crystal oxygen-free copper audio lead selected for it's electrical and mechanical characteristics.

Finished in satin black enamel, with accents of black chrome and details in bright chrome and polished stainless steel.

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.
