Founded in 1946, and with over one million tonearms sold worldwide, SME Limited is the world's most accomplished manufacturer of high quality turntables and tonearms. SME is well known for its no compromise passion for engineering perfection and extreme attention to detail.

SME turntables feature precision engineered construction, extensional damping of major surfaces and vibration free moving parts, allowing them to deliver outstanding dynamic range and pitch stability, exceptional detail and resolution, superior tonal neutrality and a unique ability to more closely reproduce the sound of the original studio master tape.

Alastair Robertson-Aikman, founder, designer and creator of SME Precision Turntables and Tonearms had a no compromise passion for engineering perfection and for perfecting the art of precision made high-end audio equipment. The SME DNA of extreme attention to detail, engineering excellence and ultimate perfection was written. This is known as “the SME way” and remains as SME’s core values and principles, which is translated into every SME product.
