SME 15 Turntable now on Permanent Demo!

Hi All,

Just a quick blog to say that we now have the stunning SME 15 Turntable on permanent demonstration, seemed the perfect turntable to take pride of place in the Highend Room :-)

We have fitted it with what many consider the best tone arm in the world, the SME V, which brings the overall price to around £10,000 without a cartridge but then you see the workmanship and feel the weight you just can’t help that think it is worth every penny.

It took a few hours to assemble but it was actually very straight forward, the most time taken was setting the arm but I should state that SME’s instructions really are brilliant and if you follow each step before you know it you have a perfectly setup turntable.

At the moment I am running one of my favourite cartridges on it, the Dynavector Te Kaitora Rua, this seems to work extremely well giving a fast and insightful sound with enough attack but still sounding very analogue, I also have a Koetsu Urushi Vermillion to try on it which I am sure will give a warmer and richer presentation, that is the great thing about an SME turntable, they are pretty neutral so they allow the strengths of the cartridge to really shine.

I also want to mention that we used the new Musical Fidelity NuVista phono stage with the SME 15 and I have to say that they seem like the perfect partners, I love the way on this stage that you can alter the loadings on them fly to get the perfect match to your cartridge but it also sounds so good, really is hard to fault really.

Anyway if you want to come and demo them SME 15 anytime please feel free, please find a few un-boxing and setting up pictures -
