John Michell è stato nominato da una giuria come il miglior progettista dello scorso secolo. Il suo più famoso giradischi è stato il Transcriptor, immortalato nel film "Arancia Meccanica" di Stanley Kubrik, e presente nel museo d'arte moderna di New York. Sempre Michell, realizzò i modellini delle navicelle spaziali in "2001 Odissea nello spazio".
We have been building quality audio turntables for over 35 years now, which makes us one of the oldest manufacturers still in business. The 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 Michell Orbe turntable takes the established concept of the GyroDec and adds to it an extra level of isolation, better structural damping, and an improved motor drive system. As of January 2004 the motor controller employs the revolutionary Never-Connected mains isolation circuitDouble chassis, suspended pendulum subchassis Damped subchassis 60 mm thick massive acrylic/vinyl platter of high inertia Screw-down record clamp, compatible with standard and 180g audiophile pressings Inverted oil-pumping bearing Custom arm boards available for most tonearms High-quality standalone DC motor with tacho feedback speed control Orbe Controller NC motor power supply with Never-Connected circuit Finished in clear or black acrylic with black or aluminium metal parts

The TecnoArm(a) is a fundamental mechanical rebuild of the well-known RB250 tonearm, to which is added monolithic wiring of the highest quality. The arm tube is bead-blasted and perforated, which disperses structural resonances and yields a lower effective mass. The arm wand is internally damped to reduce resonance further, and the headshell is machined flat, to allow true azimuth relative to the bearing craddle. After modification the bearings are re-adjusted for highest possible performance, according to original Rega procedures. One-piece perforated arm casting with internal foam damping Proprietary silver litz cable in a continuous run from cartridge to amplifier PTFE dielectric, metal braided shielding, separate ground wire Silver-plated cartridge clips and phono plugs Two counterweights, matching cartridges of 4-7g and 7-13g Vertical tracking force adjuster in steps of 0.1g Vertical tracking angle adjuster Finger locknut for easy arm removal or VTA adjustment One year warranty
FAQ LA TECNOLOGIA
LP records are warped. LP records vibrate along with the music as the stylus traces the groove. And LP records tend to move and bend under the pressure of the arm and cartridge when they are insufficiently supported. 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 center: under action of the clamp the record's playable area is then very tightly pressed down onto the flat platter, right to its edges. We make the platter from a proprietary self-damping compound of carbon/vinyl -loaded acrylic. This material closely approaches the mechanical and acoustical properties of the vinyl record itself, enhancing the coupling between both. Indeed, at boundaries of materials with like acoustic impedances, transmission of vibrational energy occurs. Whereas at boundaries of dissimilar materials, be they LP versus felt, metal, glass, or just air, only part of the energy is transmitted, the remainder being reflected back into the album, towards the stylus. Above measures not only result in a neutral and precise sound, but also in a very low susceptibility to record blemishes, ticks and pops. This is one of the reasons why a Michell Engineering turntable not only excels in the replay of good LPs, but also pulls the same trick with less than pristine records. Surely a benefit in this age of scarce fresh vinyl
The platter should
be supported so that it can revolve smoothly, without any extraneous vibrations
and motion. This is the job for the main bearing, the very heart of a turntable.
The LP/cartridge/arm trio is to reside on its own 'island'. The suspension decouples them from the outside world with its motor noise, footfall, acoustic vibrations, and other potential disturbances. All of our turntables, except the TecnoDec, suspend the heavy subchassis and platter from three extension springs. This is an elegant and self-stabilising solution as the center of gravity of the floating mass is conveniently put below the suspension points. Rocking and nodding modes of the subchassis are hence discouraged, while overall turntable setup is straightforward, and drift is virtually inexistent. In addition, the total suspended mass of about eleven kilograms ensures that any incoupled energy can not result in large displacements. The spring towers double as the actual turntable supports, terminated in heavy aluminium cones. The towers are sectioned in two vertical parts, making a high-pressure point-contact with a bearing ball. This makes for a true three point support, which gives the springs and the suspended subchassis a firm reference to ground. The floating chassis' task is to keep the bearing and arm board rigidly in relation to each other. It is a heavy and rigid cast aluminium component, internally strengthened with beams and ribs. The Orbe and Orbe SE benefit from an additional layer of DensoDamp mastic which results in an acoustically inert subchassis with excellent self-damping properties. Offering a wide range of custom-made arm boards, we can keep the mass, and the mass-distribution, of the subchassis, platter, and arm a known constant. This translates into a suspended chassis turntable that works optimally with almost any existing tone arm. Off-the-shelf boards can be delivered for the following tone arms: Michell, Rega, SME (both types), Graham, Wilson-benesch, Morch, Origin-Live, and Linn. Others can be made to order.
The most obvious task of a turntable is to keep the record at a constant and precise angular speed, without low-rate drift, without audible wow, and without high-frequency noise components which detract from the music's delicacy. The 3.5 kg heavy platter, precision balanced, acts as a large flywheel. The Orbe's platter is made of three GyroDec platters bonded together to form one massive slab of acrylic. The GyroDec and Gyro SE employ a single-thickness acrylic platter, loaded with the gold-plated brass weights which over time have become Michell's signature. Once up to speed, and aided by the low-friction bearing, the platter only wants to maintain its motion, and not much extra input from the motor is needed. 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 elimate vibrational breakthrough to the turntable. The HR and Orbe Controller NC supplies effectively isolate the motor from the potentially poluted mains network. Drive is relayed to the platter via a precision-ground soft round-section neoprene belt, which runs around the platter's circumference. This results in a very high reduction of noise transfer from the motor.
