(UK) Ltd's Phase 1 upgrade for the SME 3009 S2 tonearm.
the SME 3009 Series 2 tonearm were manufactured it was not realised
that the alignment between the cartridge headshell and the knife-edge
bearing would be
so critical in bringing improved listening quality. In later models
this was corrected.
If the alignment between the knife-edge bearing and the
cartridge headshell is not
correct, then 'azimuth
will occur, this effect causes distorted tracking ergo distorted
It is this bearing axis to headshell alignment that we have
with our conversion kit for the SME 3009 & 3012 Series 2 tonearms.
True Point (UK) Ltd acknowledged that the SME 3009 Series 2 tonearms
are the best for their time and wanted to bring the
tonearm up to date by making a kit of parts manufactured to the
highest quality while maintaining the 'SME look'. The kit is
designed to fit the
existing tonearm and correct the alignment problem that causes
azimuth roll, and improve the bearing properties of the knife edge
by using ruby sapphire v-groove bearings.
