SME Model 15 Turntable
The Model 15 outperforms competitor turntables at many times it price, providing stellar performance from an elegant chassis. It could be described as “the ultimate in recovery vehicles”, allowing the cartridge to retrieve the last nth of recorded material whether digital or analogue, from the vinyl disc and thus approaches the ultimate in perfection. Bringing many of the advanced technology from the Models 20 and 30 turntables, the Model 15 offers a compact footprint preferred by many enthusiasts.
The Model 15 has been designed with the same attention to detail combined with simplicity of operation that has come to be expected from all SME products. Its superb performance together with laid back styling make it a glamorous addition to your sound system that will astound and amaze listeners for many years to come.
The model 15 sub-chassis is suspended on thirty purpose moulded ‘O’ rings and weighs, together with the platter, more than 11.0Kgs (24 Ib), thereby meeting the requirement of high density construction on which freedom from colouration depend. The platter is machined from aluminium alloy and weighs over 4.6kg (10 Lb). It is extensionally damped, the top surface being diamond-turned with a fine scroll which delivers the very best interface with the underside of the record.
The Model 15 is available in the following formats:
MODEL 15: equipped for but not including a pick-up arm.
MODEL 15A: As above but complete with matching SME309 SPD precision pick-up-arm.
