SME Model 30/12 Turntable

The SME Model 30/12 Turntable is available for demonstration in our Hull store by request.

A larger and more impressive version of the well known Model 30/2. The SME Model 30/12 Turntable is designed to accept nine, ten and twelve-inch tonearms, but is especially designed to complement the SME Series V-12 Tonearm (£5810).

Created as a companion and to compliment the Series V-12, the Model 30/12 precision turntable enjoys all of the features associated the Model 30/2 precision turntable. The differences are merely ones of scale. The suspension now provides 60 purpose moulded ‘O’ rings supporting the sub-chassis, which has been increased in thickness by some 16%, on one hundred and twenty strands of rubber. The main chassis has received similar attention but in this case the thickness has been increased by 19%. Small differences but necessary to afford the increased rigidity required to ensure acoustic neutrality.

A larger version of our well known Model 30/2, it will accept nine, ten and twelve inch arms but is especially directed at the exciting Series V-12. This offers performance 27% better than a nine inch arm in respect of angular error distortion. Its immaculate construction and finish stem from facilities and uncompromising quality control which have made the name SME a byword for engineering excellence.
