The SME Model 30/12 is a larger and more massive version of the Model 30/2 with support for 9", 10", and 12" tonearms. The use of a 12" tonearm reduces angular distortion in correlation to the reduced angular change as it traverses the record.

The sub-chassis is suspended by 60 purpose moulded O-rings for mechanical isolation. Four fluid dampers, one in each supporting column, are used to counteract sub-chassis motion and prevent acoustic feedback. The fully machined platter features a diamond tuned surface with fine scroll finish and a large diameter record clamp for exceptional record stability.

The external moter is a 3-phase brushless design containing 8-pole Neodymium magnets and 3 Hall effect sensors for accurate and precise microprocessor-controlled speed without imparting any mechanical noise. Fine pitch ±0.01% adjustments are easily made.

Available with the Series V-12 tonearm which features a single piece pressure die cast magnesium arm tube. Also available in special chrome or gold finish at extra charge.
