The 20/12 is a larger and more massive version of the famous SME Model 20/2. 

It will accept nine, ten and twelve-inch arms but is especially directed at the exciting Model 312S. This offers a performance some 27% better than a nine-inch arm in respect of angular error distortion. The wand and headshell are pressure die-cast in magnesium and are 27g lighter than they would be in aluminium.
In the Model 20/12, superb instrument quality machining is allied with fundamental physics. The higher the mass and stiffness of a body the less it will flex and vibrate; the duration of a vibration can be shortened by suitable damping.

The 20/12 weighs approximately 33.5Kg (73.7lb), significant in relation to its size because it is density that matters. The sub-chassis measures only 20 1/2” (520mm) by 14 3/4” (375mm) but weighs 8.0Kg (17.6lb). Its thickness, 5/8” (16mm) resists flexing at low frequencies whilst high frequency resonance is attenuated by efficient extensional damping. The turntable has no sonic footprint. The sub-chassis is suspended on forty purpose moulded ‘O’ rings which ensure freedom from feedback. A large centrally placed fluid-damper disciplines sub-chassis movement with a pleasing sense of security when handling records on and off the platter.

The Model 20/12 is available in the following formats:

  • MODEL 20/2: Equipped for but not including a pick-up arm.

  • MODEL 20/2A: As above but complete with a matching SME Series V precision pick-up arm.

“The 20/12 with 312s it is, beyond doubt, one of the three of four finest turntables on the planet. Best of all…It’s the least expensive”
