SME Series IV.Vi Tonearm
Using the Series V magnesium arm tube, the Series IV.Vi is designed specifically with moving coil cartridges in mind. 52 gauge Magnan Type Vi internal wiring provides sonic excellence; along with virtually zero mechanical impedance on the bearings. Tracking force is applied statically, further reducing any mechanical impedance on the bearing. FD-IV tonearm lateral damping device included to optimize cartridge performance. Adjustable cue height to accommodate different turntable configurations. No tonearm cable included.
Features: Unique one-piece pressure die-cast tone-arm utilising the advantages of magnesium, replaces conventional fabricated construction. Internal constrained layer damps minute residual vibration leaving the tone-arm acoustically inert. Fine machined cartridge platform, enamel free to avoid interface resonance. Stainless steel cross shaft, ground and thread ground. Carried in massive yoke on 10mm ABEC 3 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. Stainless steel vertical shaft, ground and thread ground, with integral 16mm diameter flange to couple shaft and yoke. 23mm diameter steel pillar, heat treated, ground and honed, carries two 17mm ABEC 7 ball races, widely spaced to resist tilt. Anti-skate control operates through tension spring and filarnent. Dial corresponds with VTF and haspositive OFF position. Lowering/raising control gives smooth positive action. Height of lift can be adjusted. Dual-lock base provides movement control with high rigidity. Tungsten-alloy balance weight carried on damped two-point suspension. Extra-low inertia design assists warp riding. Underslung weight housing corrects centre of gravity and provides non-reflective tone-arm termination. Adjustment leadscrew journalled in twin ball races with lever clamping. Swivelling damped output socket minimises vibration transmission in sub-chassis use. Reference lines on tone-arm facilitate VTA setting. Fine adjustment of horizontal tracking angle (HTA) New design alignment protractor sets HTA with great accuracy.
