To own an ORACLE SME product is to possess a jewel of near perfection in both performance and construction. The tone-arm provides superbly detailed and transparent sound, making the music seem more alive and open. This tone-arm offers differing pivot to stylus distances and was designed for the needs of a broader market requiring alternative arm length and interchangeable shell facility. To maintain the very high standards of quality all manufacture and processing is carried on 'in house'. Facilities commence with design and toolmaking through all aspects of manufacturing including CNC machining, pressure die-casting, injection moulding, metal finishing, electro-plating, anodising and many other processes. Inspection at every stage of manufacture and assembly is particularly critical and ensures the consistent standards.
The Series 300 broadens the application of SME technology. Although the unique one-piece magnesium tone-arm is reserved for the Series IV and V arms, advanced metal working techniques produce a fabricated arm of exceptional stiffness and at the same time allow 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 arms.
Unique pressure die-cast magnesium shell detachable and interchangeable without disturbing cartridge or wiring.
New design clamping arrangement ensures rigid junction with tone-arm.
