SME Model 10A Black Edition

Only 30 of the SME Model 10A Black Edition have been made, we are taking orders if you wish to secure this limited edition turntable. We have serial numbers 1 and 2 in stock now.

The Model 10A Black Edition, made exclusively for the UK market. Featuring all-new total black detailing and matched with the SME M10 tonearm, the Model 10A Black Edition comes supplied with an Ortofon Cadenza Black cartridge.

The turntable is supported on three large polymer isolators inside adjustable feet that allow for quick and easy levelling. The trilateral sub-chassis, carried on three polymer-loaded towers, allows for impressive isolation without floating. The fully machined platter provides extensional damping and features a diamond turned top surface with a fine scroll finish for an optimal record interface. A large diameter reflex record clamp ensures the largest possible contact between platter and record. The turntable is driven by a 3 phase, brushless out runner motor with 8-pole neodymium magnets and 3 integrated hall effect sensors. It is virtually vibration-less by reason of its 2.5 kg (5.5 lbs) weight as well as being isolated on urethane mounts that are adjustable for accurate belt positioning. The electronic controller uses a high-performance microprocessor, optimised for motor control. Closed loop speed control is implemented using a proportional plus integral (PI) algorithm. Fine pitch speed adjustment allows increments/decrements of +/-0.01% of the selected speed. Speed ranges: 33.3, 45 & 78 rpm.

A derivative of the 309, the M10 tonearm is a 10-inch (238.5mm) model featuring many of the design characteristics of the classic Series V. The unique assembly, which features multiple materials each chosen for the finest precision machining and finish, includes a magnesium detachable headshell for rapid cartridge interchange, should it be required.

Featuring a Nude Shibata stylus with a boron cantilever and utilising Ortofon’s WRD (wide range damping-system), the Cadenza Black’s motor system is wound using the company’s aucurum gold plated 6NX copper wire and mounted in an extruded aluminium housing.

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.
