This Package Includes


Gyro SE Turntable with TecnoArm 2 Tonearm

Small Footprint Gyrodec

The Gyro SE is a small-footprint variation of the Gyrodec that delivers an almost identical performance to its larger sibling. The full-sized acrylic plinth on the Gyrodec has been replaced by a rigid and inert acrylic spyder to support the chassis. The Gyro SE is Michell's best-selling turntable providing a neutral, reference presentation without taking up too much space. If you are looking for a compact class-leading turntable, look no further.

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.

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.

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.

Low Contact Area Feet

The solid aluminum feet of the turntable are shaped so the area in contact with the supporting surface is very small, this is done to minimize the transfer of vibrations from the supporting furniture into the turntable.

Cusis S Moving Coil Cartridge with Shibata Stylus

The Cusis S offers extended frequency response and incredible detail retrieval whilst retaining a level of musicality that is second to none.

Features

  • Shibata stylus
  • Boron cantilever
  • Extended frequency response
  • Large aluminium chassis
  • High density Acetyl body

Samarium-Cobalt Magnet

All of Michell's Cusis cartridges share the same moving coil design. At the heart of the cartridge is a samarium-cobalt magnet which is combined with pure iron to create a very stable magnetic field within the cartridge.

Specially Designed Damper

30μ pure copper wire is used to precision wind the cartridge coils onto an ultra-lightweight armature, which is mounted onto a specially designed damper. The damper has been specifically designed to give the stylus assembly the perfect support, which ensures the stylus tracks the groove precisely.

Vibration Reduction

The construction of the cartridge has been carefully designed to eliminate vibration and resonance. The aluminum chassis is designed to absorb unwanted vibration and give a rigid platform to mount the cartridge parts. The body materials, shapes and exterior patterns have also been designed to further reduce vibration and resonance, resulting in truly unrivalled levels of detail and neutrality.
