Information You Need To Know About Michell Turntables
Michell Engineering is one of the oldest producers of turntables in the world. In the 1970s, the first Michell engineering turntable was created. Today, Michell continues to introduce high-performance turntables to fit the needs of its customers.What types of Michell turntables are available?
Michell manufactures a full line of audio turntables that are built to perform. The precision of the turntable instruments means that sound production will be as close to the master tape as possible. Here is a list of some available turntables on eBay:
- Orbe - This is Michell's award-winning flagship turntable. It has improved structural design and an improved motor. The Orbe also has a screwed-down record clamp and speed backfeed control. It is available in black acrylic.
- Gyro SEduction - Michell created a fully-certified turntable that has spider chassis, inverted oil pump bearing, and a black techno arm. The turntable has a blue steel finish.
- GyroDec - This is the first turntable introduced by Michell. This classic turntable features a three-point spring turntable, aluminum suspended sub-chassis, record clamp, and standalone DC motor.
- Gyro SE - A prototype of the original GyroDec, the Gyro SE can easily be converted into its predecessor with a few minor tweaks. It also has a high-quality motor and an acrylic/vinyl platter.
- TechnoDec - This turntable is known for its low-noise motor and solid plinth design. It requires no setup or maintenance. It comes in vinyl black finish.
Michell has introduced upgrade kits that provide turntables with better audio quality. Because of the similar engineering principles, upgrades can also take the performance level of the turntables to another level. The following is a list of current upgrades:
- HR Power Supply - This low-noise power source provides extra added stability for the turntables. The power source is reliable when you need it in a hurry. It is easy to operate, and the speed control is affixed to the back plate.
- Orbe Platter Kit - The platter kit takes Gyrodecs to the next level. The kit contains a replacement belt, threaded replacement spindle, screw down clamp, and damping material.
- Orbe Clamp Kit - This kit is designed to provide firmer coupling to the turntable. Additionally, if the vinyl gets warped, the clamp screws will flatten it out.
Michell has developed several accessories over the years to add to the customer's listening experience. Several can be found on eBay:
- Secure cover - This cover is designed to be used for all models of Michell turntables so that they remain dust-free.
- Record clamp - This black clamp has an aluminum knob. It can be used for all Michell models, as well third-party turntables.
- Tender cups - These are designed to protect the floor from the spiked feet of the turntable.
