The RM-5.1 SE makes a stunning design and audio performance statement in a value oriented performance package featuring a Sumiko Blue Point No.2 high-output moving coil cartridge (a $399 value) that is factory mounted for your convenience. A resonance-optimized platter made from MDF with integrated vinyl mat rests upon an MDF plinth with a suspended motor assembly optimized for low resonance and speed stability.
The table incorporates a stainless steel axle that runs on a Teflon bearing plate in a bronze housing for lower wow-and-flutter and superior speed accuracy. Three-point aluminum cone feet further reduce noise and vibration. A fixed headshell 9” carbon fiber tonearm with precision Swiss bearings and rigid carbon fiber arm tube provides superior tracking and cartridge control. Accurate adjustment of both VTA and azimuth is easy. Detachable interconnect cable and a screw down record clamp are included.
