SME Model 30 MK2

The SME Model 30 MK2 is the pinnacle of precision turntables. With exceptional engineering and unrivaled quality, this turntable has been deemed "the best of all time." Its heavy mass construction and advanced vibration control system results in impeccable dynamics and pitch stability. The new sophisticated drive system provides unparalleled speed control and accuracy, elevating the Model 30 to a whole new echelon.

The Model 30 is the former SME flagship turntable delivering an outstanding performance and for many years considered to be the world’s reference standard turntable. This accolade is achieved from an ingenious design, precision engineering, intelligent damping and fundamental physics. The net result of the immense care taken in the design and execution of these components is the Model 30, audio engineering excellence evolved over six decades.

The Model 30 is effortless in controlling and managing vibration, resonance, mechanical energy and electrical fields. Weighing over 42kg it is significant in relation to its size and density. The main and sub-chassis’ resists flexing at low frequencies whilst high frequency resonance is attenuated by efficient extensional damping.

The outstanding performance Model 30 is available with or without a tonearm. The tonearm option is the flagship SME Series V with contrasting Silver Printed Detail and Crystal Cable internal wiring.
