What HFL Thinks

Michell Engineering Orbe Turntable - We are firm believers that vinyl is still the best way to listen to your music, this is why we are so excited to offer Michell Turntables to our customers, there is nothing quite like the Gyro Dec and Orbe turntables, real classic designs in British HiFi, but more importantly Michell Turntables are engineered to perfection to give you accurate replay of your treasured vinyl. The original Gyro Dec's are now over 30 years old and still being serviced by Michell, meaning you can buy a Michell Turntable safe in the knowledge it will give you years of trouble free use so you can sit back and marvel at the looks and sound of your Michell Turntable.

Available in Silver, Black or Gold for the same Price!

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 circuit.
