Michell Engineering Gyro SE Turntable

£2,090.00£3,164.00 inc.VAT

The Gyro SE is a variation of the GyroDec design. Doing away with the full size acrylic plinth and hinged lid of the Gyrodec and replacing them with a single acrylic spyder to support the turntable.

This was done to reduce the overall size of the GyroDec and create a smaller more compact turntable.

All Michell Engineer are hand built to order.

Michell Engineering Gyro SE Turntable

Michell Engineering Gyro SE Features

  • Low contact area feet: The solid aluminium feet of the Michell Engineering Gyro SE are shaped so the area in contact with the supporting surface is very small, this is done to minimise the transfer of vibrations from the supporting furniture into the turntable.
  • Three point spring suspension system: Three suspension towers are fixed to the acrylic base to hold the suspension springs in place and provide height adjustment for the sub chassis.
  • Weighted pendulum style sub chassis: Hanging on the three suspension springs, this provides a rigid dense platform to mount the main bearing, platter and tonearm assembly, ensuring there is no movement between them, while also acting as a ‘resonance / vibration sink’ drawing away unwanted vibrations from the sensitive elements of the turntable.
  • Inverted oil circulating main bearing: Contrary to traditional designs, our main bearing has the point of rotation at the top of the assembly, not at the bottom. This orientation allows us to fully lubricate the inside of the entire bearing while the platter is turning. We achieve this by way of a modified Archimedean screw that we machine into the inside bore of the bearing. The oil is drawn from a reservoir at the base of the main bearing up to the thrust ball at the top, fully lubricating as it goes, it then returns to the reservoir via a waste hole drilled into the bearing spindle. Lubricating the precision parts of the main bearing in this way means that any potential for noise or vibration created by the rotation of the platter is avoided.
  • Impedance-matched platter with solid brass weights: The platter material was chosen for its vibration dampening characteristics and because sonically it is a very similar material to vinyl, so it has a very neutral sound characteristic. The brass weights are added to give the platter extra mass and subsequently more momentum when spinning. This greatly improves speed stability and helps keep wow and flutter to a minimum.
  • Free standing motor unit: The motor unit used to drive the turntable is completely separate to the turntable, meaning it doesn’t touch the turntable in anyway. The only connection between the motor and the turntable is the drive belt that drives the platter. This stops any noise or vibrations created when the motor is running, getting through to the sensitive parts of the turntable.

Michell Engineering GyroDec SE Tonearm Options:

TecnoArm 2

The TecnoArm 2 is designed to offer a truly audiophile listening experience at exceptional value for money and easily competes with tonearms at three times the price!
 
Utilising a custom one piece arm tube, the tube is shot -blasted to make it more rigid and then 22 holes are drilled in the underside to reduce mass. The underside of the integral head shell is machined to be perfectly parallel with the bearing position. The tonearm is then assembled using the new ultra-low friction polymer bearings and mounted on a redesigned mounting base.
 
The TecnoArm 2 is wired with our proprietary wiring loom and 99.9999% pure silver litz wire, from cartridge tags to phono plugs, with no internal wiring joints.
Our TecnoWeight counter weight allows you to set the tracking force for your chosen cartridge easily and our new VTA/SRA adjuster sets the height of your tonearm, helping you ensure the stylus tracks the vinyl groove at the correct angle.
 
The TecnoArm 2 has been designed to offer a truly audiophile listening experience with exceptional value for money. This is a tonearm that can easily compete with others three times the price!

T2 Tonearm

The T2 is the latest incarnation of one of our most popular tonearms.
 
The latest T2 Tonearm design takes full advantage of our brand new arm tube and the current three point arm mounting system. Each T2 is meticulously hand assembled, creating a precision crafted tonearm achieving extremely low friction levels and performance way beyond the expectations of a product at this price point.
 
The T2 uses a custom one piece, aluminium arm tube, carefully manufactured to optimise performance and reduce stress on the ultra low friction polymer bearings. Each tonearm is meticulously hand assembled using custom made tools and torque settings to guarantee optimum performance. This level of care ensures perfect track-ing and maximises the amount of information the cartridge can extract from the record surface.

T3 Tonearm

Every aspect of this new tonearm has been improved over its predecessor, from improved ergonomics and usability to overall sonic performance.
 
Featuring a new bias assembly, re-designed stiffer vertical bearing housing, integrated
arm clip and an improved spring housing with easier to read numbers.
 
Other improvements include a low capacitance phono cable terminated with high quality ‘Neutrik’ plugs, improved lower friction, precision horizontal and vertical bearings and a re-designed 100g mild steel balance weight.
 
Designed using the latest 3D CAD & CAM technology. Featuring a brand new bearing housing and our latest tonearm tube, designed using intelligent redistribution of mass, ensures this arm will exhibit fewer points of possible resonance. Extreme stability with almost friction free movement from the new high precision bearing assembly guarantees to extract more information from your vinyl than ever before.
