SME Series 300 tonearm

Although the unique one-piece magnesium tone-arm is used for the Series 300 Model 309, advanced metal techniques produce a fabricated arm of exceptional stiffness for the Series 300 Model 310 and 312 arms thus allowing a choice of three arm lengths to suit all decks.

The detachable magnesium headshell has a new style coupling, providing the convenience of rapid cartridge interchange without loss of rigidity.
Our designers can be justly proud of these models which offer a performance and manufacturing excellence unmatched by many more expensive models.

The Series 300 is available in five formats

Series 300 Model 309
9" Tonearm

Series 300 Model 309 GD
As above but with Gold detail print.

Series 300 Model 310
10" Tonearm

Series 300 Model 312
12" Tonearm

Series 300 Model 312S
As above but with Gold detail print and FDIV damper

Unique pressure die-cast magnesium shell detachable and interchangeable without disturbing cartridge or wiring.
New design clamping arrangement ensures rigid junction with tone-arm.
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.

23mm diameter steel pillar, heat treated, ground and honed, carries two 17mm precision ball races, widely spaced to resist tilt.
