SAEC WE-308SX - SILVER WIRED LIMITED EDITION

ilustrace

Following the launch of overwhelmingly well received WE-308, SAEC revisited the compendium of oscillatory systems theory and took a calm look at the WE-308. SAEC reasserted that theory-wise as well as audio experience-wise it is a supreme solution and looked for further improvements to make the system of double edge knife bearing even more perfect. Owing to tests and prototypes, new materials developed, new ideas put forward, steady work increasing precision of as many as 150 parts done, SAEC succeeded at adding radical improvement. WE-308SX was completed.


SAEC went even further with double knife edge precision, improved it to the point where there is almost nowhere to go next. It took every precaution to provide extreme sensitivity while avoiding deterioration in time as the hard rubies were used for the point of contact portions of the double knife edge. At the same time, it strived to provide durability, sufficient for pro equipment - strengthening and concealing the portions around the axis so that not even slight floating or displacement occurrs, no matter what force is applied to knife edge portion and edge bearing. Also, was developed a sintered oxidized aluminum, a material harder than sapphire, for headshell that accomplished the matching quality sound improvements to upgrade the cartridge.

SAEC WE-308SX - SILVER WIRED LIMITED EDITION

Nowdays refurbishment made by Fonolab company specialists, vintage tonearms are not only rebuilt but completely cleaned from the ground up and has a new pure silver 99,99% Van den Hul MCS-150M wiring including Cardas male 5 pin DIN plug. All parts are checked for acceptable tolerances.The unacceptable parts are discarded and replaced with original SAEC parts. At the end the tonearms are put to the final tuning test.

We infuse new blood into SAEC tonearms thus saving all advantages of their brilliant mechanisms.

SX mark - proof of pride and responsibility. Delivering supreme perfection.

CONCEALED DOUBLE KNIFE EDGE

It is the perfect bearing solution with no diameter and no resistance. The bearing uses rubies and achieves high vibration sensitivity of 5mg in both vertical and horizontal direction.

MECHANICAL EQUALIZER

All our SAEC tonearms are equipped with installed mechanical equalizer which optimally filters low pass resonance. This helps accomplish a noteworthy characteristic which is, improving crosstalk by 20dB in FO.

INSIDE FORCE CANCELLER AND AUTOMATIC STYLUS PRESSURE INCREASE

Based on the hanging weight method, an exquisite inside force canceller was added automatic pressure increase mechanism for the first time anywhere ever. This helped increase stylus pressure as it is progressing to the inner grooves of a record. Stylus tip skating is prevented, especially high-pass is stabilized and reproduction with minimal distortion is made possible.

ULTIMATE ULS-3X CERAMIC HEADSHELL

It is extremely stiff due to new material - sintered oxidized aluminium thus eliminating twisting, bending, and so on. The contact of free play at the arm pipe and headshell connection is eliminated owing to SAEC original TT method (3 point crimping). Headshell equipped with Oyaide HSR-AG 5N (99.999%) silver headshell wires.

EXTREMELY STIFF ARM PIPE

The pipe is from specially treated and extremely rigid compositional metal.

SILVER WIRING

Internal wiring of the limited edition is made of very flexible 7 strand Van den Hul MCS-150M silver wire. The MCS - 150 M consists of 7 individually insulated very pure Matched Crystal Silver strands each 80 micron in diameter including insulation. Being less susceptible to bending damage, its thinner extruded strands give this multistrand version even a better sound quality.  The sound character is extremely smooth with a lot of very fine detail. Typically a non metallic sound.

COMPATIBILITY WITH CARTRIDGES

It is fully compatible with all cartridges regardless of light weight or heavy weight class, high or low compliance.

OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES

For those needing more than a standard tonearm counterweight or more sophisticated SAEC headshells, a complete selection of optional parts are available to facilitate multiple cartridge and tonearm installations.
