The Orbe is Michell Engineering's flagship turntable, it builds upon all that was learnt from developing the GyroDec and takes it to the next level.
The Michell Orbe delivers analogue playback at it's finest - with a wide, deep soundstage that makes it feel like the artists are performing in the room. From the inky black background springs a tremendous, warm analogue bass that showcases why analogue sound is still considered superior by many HiFi enthusiasts and audiophiles.
Capable of delivering a true audiophile listening experience, the Orbe has to be heard to be believed.
2 levels of isolation, a massive 60mm thick vibration damping platter and the most sophisticated power supply and motor configuration we have ever created, help raise the Orbe to levels of performance orders of magnitude above its modest price point.
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.
Dual high density acrylic bases:Separated by 3 pin points the acrylic bases of the Orbe not only provide a rigid non resonant surface to fix the suspension system to, they also create a very efficient isolation platform to help eliminate structural feedback.
Three point spring suspension system:Three suspension towers are fixed to the secondary acrylic base to hold the suspension springs in place and provide height adjustment for the sub chassis.
Hinged lid:The turntable comes with a hinged clear acrylic lid to protect the turntable from dust and damage. The hinges are made in two parts that allow the lid to be easily removed if required.
