MICHELL ENGINEERING: Synchro turntable test review

Howard Popeck writes: The Synchro was mid-priced turntable inspired by the original GyroDec, but with an inverted-pendulum suspension and a glass platter. It looked dazzling 20 years ago, and it still does today. In the John Michell tradition, all the working parts are exposed, superbly engineered and impeccably cosmetically finished.

MICHELL ENGINEERING: Calling all Orbe and Gyrodec owners

Anyone ever tried putting something like an Inspire Acri-Mat (or similar?) on their Orbe / Gyro and leaving the clamp off? What does it do to the sound? I ask out of laziness and because I’ve now got quite a few 180g re-released LP’s that have double the amount of vinyl and half the amount […]

MICHELL ENGINEERING: GyroDec SE Mk. II turntable test review

  Brad Morrical writes ….. “Once you hear the GyroDec SE Mk.II (or rather, don’t hear it), you know it’s going to be in your system for the long haul. With a naturally balanced cartridge, I have not heard reproduced music sounding closer to live than through the GyroDec. I don’t see the need to […]

MICHELL ENGINEERING: TecnoDec (RB250 Tonearm / Denon DL103 Cartridge) test review

“Its neutral balance is good for keeping the various elements consistent with one another and it makes a clear case for itself next to a more affordable deck like the Rega P3-24, thanks to a decent grasp of timing. Some will prefer a warmer sound, perhaps, but that’s a matter of cartridge choice and while […]
