The Model 20 Mk2 comes in 3 versions - the 20/3A Mk2, the 20/12A Mk2, 20/12A - V12 Mk2.

The MK2 Model 20 is a finely engineered precision turntable. High density construction, extensional damping of major surfaces and lack of vibration from moving parts ensures exceptional detail, resolution and uncoloured performance. Equipped with a new highly advanced drive system provides a significant improvement to speed control, accuracy and
stability, making the new generation Model 20 far superior to the highly acclaimed original.

The Model 20 has superb instrument quality machining allied with fundamental physics, the higher the mass and stiffness of the body the less it will flex and vibrate; the duration of a vibration is shortened by advanced damping treatment. The Model 20 effortlessly addresses the problems of extraneous vibrations which emanate from numerous sources including air and structural vibration from loudspeakers, groove modulation, stray electrical fields and mechanical energy from moving parts.

Weighing 26kg is significant in relation to its size as density matters. The main and sub-chassis plate thicknesses are 16mm and resists flexing at low frequencies whilst high frequency resonance is attenuated by efficient extensional damping.

The definitive performance Model 20 is available with or without a tonearm. The tonearm option is the flagship SME Series V with contrasting Silver Printed Detail and Crystal Cable internal wiring.
