SME is delighted to introduce the Model 6 Classic with the highly credited M2-9R tonearm.
Following the successful launch of the Model 6 integrated turntable, the M2-9R tonearm version in now available.
The M2-9R tonearm offers design and engineering excellence built by enthusiasts for enthusiasts with extensive features including thumbwheel vertical tracking adjustment, tungsten balance weights, double draw-pin detachable headshell and azimuth adjustment.

The Model 6 Classic turntable is the same as the standard M2-9 version with a CNC machined chassis from a unique polymer high density resin material providing a high mass, small footprint, and superb resonance absorption, importantly delivering a unique sonic performance. Main bearing, spindle and drive pulleys are precision made to the same exact standards as all SME high-end turntables. In addition, the Model 6 is equipped with a new generation highly sophisticated electronic speed control unit providing fine pitch speed adjustment within a wide band range. A cosmetic enhancement of machined aluminium finishers fitted to the isolation feet complete the look of the Classic.
