For sale is SME Model 10 tonearm.
It is used, in perfect condition with all accessories including Hex Keys, VTA Alignment Key, original SME Cable and Cartridge Alignment Template.
It comes from upgrade of almost new SME 10 turntable.
The SME Model 10 tonearm is the same to Series 300, broadens the application of SME technology, but with simplified mounting base.
Although the unique one-piece magnesium tone-arm is used for the Series Model 10, advanced metal techniques produce a fabricated arm of exceptional stiffness.
It is almost "the best in the world (c)" tonearm, perfect for high-compliance cartridges such as Shure M95, M97, V15, Ortofon 2m, etc.
Here is some info from SME:
= The detachable magnesium headshell has a new style coupling, providing the convenience of rapid cartridge interchange without loss of rigidity.
= Unique pressure die-cast magnesium shell detachable and interchangeable without disturbing cartridge or wiring.
= New design clamping arrangement ensures rigid junction with tone-arm.
= Internal constrained layer damps minute residual vibrations making tone-arm acoustically inert.
= Stainless steel cross shaft, ground and thread ground. Carried in massive yoke on 10mm precision ball races. Axis at record mean level to minimise warp-wow.
= Unique assembly gives high rigidity and allows bearings to be critically adjusted before tone-arm is fitted.
= Stainless steel vertical shaft, ground and thread ground, with integral 16mm diameter flange to couple shaft and yoke. 23mm diameter steel pillar, heat treated, ground & honed, two 17mm precision ball races, widely spaced to resist tilt.
= Anti-skate control operates through tension spring and filament. Dial corresponds with VTF and has positive OFF position.
= Lowering/raising control gives smooth positive action. Height of lift can be adjusted.
= Tungsten-alloy balance weight carried on damped two-point suspension.
= Extra-low inertia design assists warp riding.
= Underslung weight housing corrects centre of gravity and provides non reflective tone-arm termination.
= Swivelling, damped output socket minimises vibration transmission in sub-chassis use.
= Fine adjustment of horizontal tracking angle (HTA).
= New design alignment protractor sets HTA with great accuracy.
= Cartridge leads and internal wiring LCOFC litz.
= SME Interconnect Cable
