The Michell Gyrodec turntable is an iconic turntable design from the golden era of HiFi when Analogue was king. The Gyrodec combines retro future good looks with extremely high quality sound for realistic sounding reproduction form the vinyl medium.
The GyroDec turntable first introduced in the early 1980’s had a design far beyond any other turntable at the time. Utilising a hanging pendulum style sub chassis and isolated drive motor, it literally turned turntable design on its head!
The modern GyroDec may look very similar to the original 1980’s design, the reality however is that it is a far more sophisticated beast. Everything from the motor and power supply to the platter and main bearing have been redesigned and improved over time to ensure the performance and reliability of the turntable remains class leading. The earlier Gyrodec turntables can be upgraded to current specifications - please contact us for more information.
Low contact area feet:The solid aluminium feet of the turntable 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.
High density acrylic base:This provides a rigid non resonant surface to fix the suspension system to.
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.
