SME Model 15 Turntable

The SME Model 15 Turntable is available for demonstration in our Hull store by request.

Taking inspiration from the flagship Model 30 turntable, the SME Model 15 seeks to emulate the excellence of its older brother whilst maintaining a more compact design, and modest price point.

The SME Model 15 sub chassis is suspended on 30 purpose moulded ‘O’ rings and weighs, together with the platter, more than 11.0 kg (24 lbs). Helping the deck deliver a natural performance that is free from colouration.

A 4.6kg fully machined platter, crafted from aluminium, provides the turntable with extra damping. The SME Model 15 platter is completed thanks to a diamond turned top surface with a fine scroll finish giving an optimal record interface. To keep your record in place the Model 15 Turtables comes with a large diameter reflex record clamp.

All of this is driven by a 3 phase, brushless outrunner motor with 8-pole Neodymium magnets and 3 integrated Hall effect sensors. Due to the motors weight (2.5kg) it is virtually vibrationless, but this hasn't stopped SME taking it one step further by isolating the motor further by using urethane mounts that are adjustable for accurate belt positioning.

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.
