Michell has been building quality audio turntables for over 35 years now, which makes them one of the oldest manufacturers still in business. The Michell GyroDec turntable has been around for over 25 years, and even its first incarnation can still be upgraded to the latest status. Michell turntables are precision instruments, built to last, and to reproduce sound as close as possible to the mastertape
The task of a turntable seems to be simple. At audio frequencies, the arm should be kept locked above the groove, without any extraneous motion relative to the cartridge. And the groove should be dragged at a constant angular speed underneath the stylus. This means that over the whole frequency band of 10Hz up to 20 kHz and beyond, the whole loop made by the record, platter, bearing, (sub) chassis, arm board, tonearm, and cartridge body should behave in an utterly rigid and non-resonant fashion. Any flexure of the same dimensions as the microscopic undulations in the groove detracts from sonic fidelity.
Michell turntables clamp the record to a hard platter. This flattens out warps, and it also couples the LP tightly to the platter so that internal resonances can be drained away from the stylus as if the LP effectively is of a much higher thickness and rigidity.
The Michell TecnoDec is the new entry-level turntable, taking the low-noise DC motor and the impedance-matched platter of the Michell GyroDec, along with an advanced bearing on an elegant solid-plinth design with damped feet. The Michell TecnoDec requires no user-setup or maintenance.
Due to the delicate nature of Michell Turntables when shipped they need to be partly assembled to some degree or other, dependant on the model. They do come with full instructions and any advice is available from our sales staff.
