Product Description

Based on the multi-award winning Series V pick-up arm, the Series V-12 incorporates the same design and engineering that have made SME a byword for excellence. Coherent musical control is held over the entire frequency range in terms of tonal quality, stability and stereo imaging. Startling dynamic range, neutrality, structurally inert, the Series V-12 embodies every worthwhile feature in a pick-up arm.

Build

  • The 12in pressure die-cast tone-arm utilises the advantages of magnesium and exploits the reduction in maximum tracking error/distortion afforded by the greater arm length when compared with 9in models.
  • Stainless steel cross shaft, ground and thread ground. Carried in massive yoke on Ø10mm precision ball races. Axes at record mean level to minimise warp-wow.
  • Dynamic balance. Graduated vertical tracking force control applies up to 3.0g x 0.125g VTF through resonance controlled spring.
  • Stainless steel vertical shaft, ground and thread ground, with integral Ø16mm flange to couple shaft and yoke.
  • Ø23mm steel pillar, heat treated, ground and honed, carries two Ø17mm precision ball races, widely spaced to resist tilt.
  • Underslung weight housing corrects centre of gravity and provides non-reflective tone-arm termination.

Damping

  • Internal constrained layer damps minute residual vibration leaving the tone-arm acoustically inert.
  • Fine machined cartridge platform, enamel free to avoid interface resonance.
  • Swivelling, damped output socket minimises vibration transmission in sub-chassis use.
  • Tungsten-alloy balance carried on two-point suspension. Extra-low inertia design assists warp riding.
  • Subsonic lateral-mode damper can be instantly adjusted or cancelled.

Adjustments

  • Anti-skate control operates through tension spring and filament. Dial corresponds with VTF and has a positive OFF position.
  • Lowering/raising control gives smooth positive action. Height of lift can be adjusted.
  • Dual-lock base provides movement control with high rigidity.
  • Fine adjustment of horizontal tracking angle (HTA).
  • Reference lines on tone-arm facilitate VTA setting.
  • Fine adjustment of horizontal tracking angle (HTA).
