J.A. Michell Orbe SE Turntable

 

Save $500.00 and free shipping!

 

This listing is for a brand new, factory sealed J.A. Michell Orbe SE turntable with silver anodized finish. Includes your choice of a tonearm mounting board for Rega, SME, Wilson Benesch, Well Tempered or Souther tonearm. (Specify at time of ordering).

 

The Orbe SE is Michell's highly acclaimed flagship turntable and has earned a reputation worldwide as one of the best decks at any price. It is powered by a powerful European-made DC motor that provides a tachometer feedback signal for the NC Tacho power supply. Using this signal, the power supply adjusts its output in real time to keep the motor turning at a very constant speed. The NC Tacho power supply has a massive 350VA transformer and uses patented Never Connected technology, ensuring the load is never connected directly to the incoming AC mains supply. This is accomplished by alternately charging two banks of filter capacitors. While one set is charging, the other set is electrically disconnected from the mains-powered charging circuit and then discharges into the motor. This breaks the conduction path from the AC mains, preventing unwanted power contamination, noise and interference from getting to the motor. Essentially the motor sees a pure DC source as if it were running off a battery. The sound improvement over a standard power supply is stunning.

The Orbe SE has a massive black acrylic platter that is made from a proprietary graphite and vinyl-damped material to mimic the properties of a vinyl LP. The underside of the platter is scalloped out near the center to aid in gyroscopic rotation while keeping the center of gravity in line with the center of the oil-pumping inverted bearing. 

The platter is topped by a screw-down Delrin clamp which has a special feature. Its knob has two internal sets of threads superimposed 180 degrees apart. This ensures the clamp begins to tighten within 1/2 a turn, a nice engineering touch by John Michell.

The metal chassis is damped with Michell's own proprietary DensoDamp compound and suspended from three pillars which incorporate single point contact de-coupling and are height adjustable. These pillars are screwed into an acrylic spider which itself sits on a second spider via three single point contact cone and cup isolators. The triple de-coupling ensures that the deck stays mass-loaded to its support yet rejects ambient vibration.

The tonearm mounting board is also isolated by three Delrin spacers with embedded nitrile rubber o-rings. The motor sits in a butyl rubber cup suspended inside the massive bronze standalone motor housing. Drive is via a centerless ground, round section belt comprised of a proprietary rubber compound. 

Dimensions: 19" W x 15" D x 7.5" H
