SME Model 309 Tonearm

The SME 309 is One of the World's Top-Value High-Tech Tonearms and is Guaranteed to Improve the Sound of Your Turntable Dramatically

The SME Model 309 tonearm comes with an adjustable and removable magnesium headshell. It provides a combination of high performance and ease of operation. Get the same workmanship and similar performance parameters of the reference SME Model V at a much more affordable price. Highly recommended!

  • Unique pressure die-cast magnesium shell detachable and interchangeable without disturbing cartridge or wiring.
  • New design clamping arrangement ensures rigid junction with tone-arm.
  • Two-piece ultra-stiff tone-arm reflects sophisticated metalworking techniques.
  • Internal constrained layer damps minute residual vibrations making tone-arm acoustically inert.
  • Stainless steel cross shaft, ground and thread ground. Carried in massive yoke on 10mm precision ball races. Axis at record mean level to minimise warp-wow.
  • Unique assembly gives high rigidity and allows bearings to be critically adjusted before tone-arm is fitted.
  • Stainless steel vertical shaft, ground and thread ground, with integral 16mm diameter flange to couple shaft and yoke.
  • 23mm diameter steel pillar, heat treated, ground and honed, carries two 17mm precision ball races, widely spaced to resist tilt.
  • Anti-skate control operates through tension spring and filament. Dial corresponds with VTF and has 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.
  • Tungsten-alloy balance weight carried on damped two-point suspension. Extra-low inertia design assists warp riding.
  • Underslung weight housing corrects center of gravity and provides non reflective tone-arm termination.
  • Swiveling, damped output socket minimizes vibration transmission in sub-chassis use.
  • Reference lines on tone-arm facilitate VTA setting.
  • Fine adjustment of horizontal tracking angle (HTA)
  • New design alignment protractor sets HTA with great accuracy.
  • Cartridge leadsand internal wiring areLCOFCLitz wire
  • Balanced LCOFC audio lead with gold plated phono plugs.
