MICHELL TECNODEC

Entry-level spiller fra legendariske Michell Engineering. Kommer uten arm og pick up.

» Mer om produktet

Our new entry-level turntable, taking the low-noise DC motor and the impedance-matched platter of the GyroDec, along with an advanced bearing on an elegant solid-plinth design with damped feet. The Michell TecnoDec requires no user-setup or maintenance.

- Solid-plinth turntable with standalone motor
- Acrylic/vinyl platter, impedance-matched to the record
- Oil-pumping inverted bearing
- High-quality standalone DC motor
- Arm board for Rega-compatible arms
- Optional record clamp
- Optional HR power supply
- Optional dust cover
- Finished in black acrylic with aluminium metal parts

Pure Sorbothane feet inserts.

Designed to isolate the turntable from structural vibration in the supporting surface.

Impedance-matched platter.

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.

Free standing motor unit.

Machined from a solid billet of aircraft grade aluminium, the turntable motor unit is designed to minimise any transfer of tiny vibrations created when the motor is running, to the sensitive parts of the turntable. When in operation the only connection between the motor and the rest of the turntable, is the drive belt turning the platter. This innovation lifts the performance of the TecnoDec and sets it apart from the competition.

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.
