There is now a new connector kit for the SME 3009/3012 tonearms, as well as for the SME M2/9 and M2/12 tonearms available. The new 5-pin kit horizontal is the optimal solution for turntables with a limited height and therefore no room to plug the connectors from the bottom. This solution needs only a depth of 65mm. Another advantage of this solution is, that the tonearm can be operated both fully balanced and unbalanced. The operating mode depends only on the configuration of the phono cable.
