    MY TAKE: Without question, SME is an icon in the industry. With a seventy-year tradition of perfection in design, engineering and manufacture, SME has always been considered the pinnacle of analog art and science. Arguments may rage between analog devotees concerning “the best” turntable and tonearms, SME owners sit back and enjoy the music! My highest recommendation. – Galen Carol

     

    MODEL 10 Turntable -
     

    The SME Model 10 precision turntable is built to exacting engineering standards providing reliability and freedom from critical adjustments. Build integrity, sophisticated electronics and vibration free moving parts allow the full capabilities on any sound system to be fully explored.

    The designer’s aim was to create a more affordable product, preserving as much as possible of the performance and engineering excellence found in the celebrated Model 30/2 ‘the best turntable of all time’.

    The Model 10 weighs more than 15 kg (33 lbs) but is only 304 mm in diameter, thus meeting all the requirements of high density construction that is required to maintain freedom from coloration.

     

    Damping -

    The turntable is supported on three large polymer isolators inside adjustable feet that allow for quick and easy leveling. A trilateral sub-chassis that is carried on three polymer loaded towers; a novel design which allows impressive isolation without floating.

     

    Platter -

    Fully machined platter providing extensional damping, with a diamond turned top surface with a fine scroll finish for an optimal record interface. Large diameter reflex record clamp ensures largest possible contact between platter and record.

     

    Motor -

    The turntable is driven by a 3 phase, brushless outrunner motor with 8-pole Neodymium magnets and 3 integrated Hall effect sensors and virtually vibrationless by reason of its 2.5 kg (5.5 lbs) weight as well as being isolated on urethane mounts that are adjustable for accurate belt positioning.

     

    Speed Control -

    The electronic controller uses a high performance microprocessor, optimized for motor control. Closed loop speed control is implemented using a proportional plus integral (PI) algorithm. Fine pitch speed adjustment allows increments/decrements of +/-0.01% of selected speed. Speed ranges: 33.3, 45 & 78 rpm.

     

    Dimensions and Weight -

    Dimensions: 370 x 250 x 161 mm
    Net weight: 16 kg (38 lbs)
    Shipping weight: 18.25 kg (55 lbs)
