Michell Gyrodec Turntable (Ex Arm)
The Michell GyroDec Turntable (Ex Arm) is the classic Michell turntable, continuously refined during many years of development to the current level of performance. The Michell GyroDec Turntable is a three-point spring-suspended turntable of medium mass, which is compatible with most quality tone arms in existence. Earlier GyroDecs can always be brought up to present spec, and every modern GyroDec can be upgraded to almost the status of the mighty Orbe.
Michell have been building quality audio turntables for over 35 years now, which makes us 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 master tape.
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 Gyro SE and GyroDec models use a simple clamp to press down the LP record; the Orbe and Orbe SE benefit from a more advanced screw-down clamp and a washer that raises the LP at its centre: under action of the clamp the record's playable area is then very tightly pressed down onto the flat platter, right to its edges
This motor is a very precise, reliable, and low-noise DC motor that has been selected only after extensive listening sessions and reliability tests. The Orbe models use a version of the same motor with a tacho speed control loop back to the supply. With all turntables the motor is a stand-alone unit, housed in a heavy base of metal (almost 3kg for the Orbe), to climate vibrational breakthrough to the turntable. The HR and Orbe Controller NC supplies effectively isolate the motor from the potentially polluted mains network

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.
