It really looks like this is going to be a great year for new HiFi as every week we seem to have something new to get excited about.
This week it is SME's turn to unleash their new Reference Flagship Turntable on the world and being that I love my Vinyl and SME this really is exciting news.
It is a totally new design using machined aluminium for the chassis with a new Reference tonearm based on what is already considered by many to be the best tonearm in the world, the Series V, this new one is known as the Series VA, where the A stands for advanced, there is also a new Controller Unit with the power supply in a seperate box to reduce any unwanted interference, so as you can see no stone has been left unturned to get the very best performance.
Being that it is a ground up new design and from SME you really can expect the ultimate in engineering and precision using only the best materials, it will start at around £50,000 for either the standard Black or Brushed Silver but Premium colours of your choice are available for around an extra 10-15%, have to say that the blue looks stunning.
