SME Series V-12 Tonearm

General Note: SME tonearms that have been previously wired internally with LCOFC will now be wired with higher specification silver plated matched crystal OFC.

Based on the multi-award winning Series V tonearm, 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 tonearm.  

The 12 inch tone-arm is pressure die-cast in magnesium complete with an Integrated headshell to eliminate tone-arm resonances in the audio spectrum and offers a 27% reduction in maximum angular error distortion over 9 inch models.


- Internal constrained layer damps minute residual vibration leaving the tone-arm acoustically inert.
- Fine machined cartridge platform, enamel free to avoid interface resonance.
- Dynamic balance. Graduated vertical tracking force control applies up to 3.0g x 0.125g VTF through resonance controlled spring.
- Lowering/raising control gives smooth positive action. Height of lift can be adjusted.
- Subsonic lateral-mode damper can be instantly adjusted or cancelled
- Dual-lock base provides movement control with high rigidity.
- Tungsten-alloy balance carried on two-point suspension. Extra-low inertia design assists warp riding.
- Swivelling, damped output socket minimises vibration transmission in sub-chassis use.    
- Alignment protractor designed to provide HTA setting with greater accuracy.
