Please Note: This is a one time listing for an ex-demonstration unit at a discounted price. Includes original packaging.

The Model 10 has been a mainstay of SME’s turntable range since 2010. The new Black Edition is the first time the Model 10A has been packaged with a cartridge, enabling customers to experience their vinyl collections with minimal fuss.

Partnering the SME Model 10A Black Edition for this none-more black outfit is Ortofon's Cadenza Black moving coil cartridge. Mounted on the SME M10 tonearm explicitly designed to match the Model 10 turntable, the overall package makes a powerful statement in its limited edition all-black livery.

Each Model 10A Black Edition will feature a special laser-etched manufacturers data plate with a unique serial number (# of 30). A certificate, bearing the name and signature of the technician who has assembled it, will also be included to commemorate limited edition status.

The turntable is supported on three large polymer isolators inside adjustable feet that allow for quick and easy levelling. The trilateral sub-chassis, carried on three polymer-loaded towers, allows for impressive isolation without floating. The fully machined platter provides extensional damping and features a diamond turned top surface with a fine scroll finish for an optimal record interface. 

A large diameter reflex record clamp ensures the largest possible contact between platter and record. The turntable is driven by a 3 phase, brushless out runner motor with 8-pole neodymium magnets and 3 integrated hall effect sensors.  It is virtually vibration-less by reason of its 2.5 kg (5.5 lbs) weight as well as being isolated on urethane mounts that are adjustable for accurate belt positioning. 

The electronic controller uses a high-performance microprocessor, optimised for motor control. Closed loop speed control is implemented using a proportional plus integral (PI) algorithm. Fine pitch speed adjustment allows increments/decrements of +/-0.01% of the selected speed. Speed ranges: 33.3, 45 & 78 rpm.

A derivative of the 309, the M10 tonearm is a 10-inch (238.5mm) model featuring many of the design characteristics of the classic Series V.  The unique assembly, which features multiple materials each chosen for the finest precision machining and finish, includes a magnesium detachable headshell for rapid cartridge interchange, should it be required. Featuring a Nude Shibata stylus with a boron cantilever and utilising Ortofon’s WRD (wide range damping-system), the Cadenza Black’s motor system is wound using the company’s aucurum gold plated 6NX copper wire and mounted in an extruded aluminium housing.
