SME Series M2-9

Overview

These arms offer at reasonable cost, meticulous build quality with all the most important features including lightweight stainless steel tonearm, detachable magnesium headshell with azimuth adjustment, tungsten balance weight, superb quality ball race bearings etc., and a level of stiffness and rigidity to suit all types of cartridge.

These precision pick-up arms embody well tried SME principles and are suited to a broad range of cartridges including those of medium and low compliance.

The M2 shell is pressure die-cast in magnesium for lightness and rigidity.

Series M2-9 is the standard arm having a pivot-stylus dimension of 233.2 mm (9.18”) and will therefore be the one most frequently used.

Features

Damping

The internally damped tonearm of highly polished stainless steel provides sparkling uncoloured reproduction. A unique single element balance system caters for cartridges weighing 5 to 12 grams. After balancing tracking force is applied by forward movement of the weight ensuring the lowest system inertia. The weight moves on a precision screw thread with backlash eliminator allowing exact setting of vertical tracking force.

Adjustments

A collet of ingenious design affords ‘one-piece’ rigidity and allows azimuth correction to be made before final tightening. 1.0 gram per revolution tungsten weight sub-graduated 0.25 and 0.025 gram moving on a precision screw with backlash eliminator. 220mm (48”) D501 balanced audio lead. Engineered in the best camera quality with satin chrome finish Fluid damped lift/lower control. Low friction, fully shielded races for both axes. Sliding base for tracking adjustment. Thumbwheel height adjustment. Traditional pattern anti-skate.
