A thread for your Michell stuff :cool:

I have had two Michell turntables now, first up, my old and first TT, a '70s Focus One, with the Focus Unipivot Arm:

Gyro SE owner here too! Until recently it mainly carried an SME309 and Kontrpunkt b but these are doing duties elsewhere at the mo so it's currently sporting......nothing.

Can't help thinking my Audio Note Arm Two/II would look nice back on it though...

OK then chaps with the current setup, what would be the next step?

Michell Gryro SE (with dampening, decoupling kit and clamp)

Standard PSU

Standard Rega RB300

Ortofon 2M Blue

~Phonostage not decided, currently a Rega Brio-R but I doubt that will stay long term.

The RB300 arm is not the best, bit old and the base is a bit loose. I guess this might be the first place to look (S/H TechnoArm?), other than the HR PSU?

Budget, depending what I spend on the next amp, if I am sensible that would give me ~£300.

Audiomods arm, or HR PSU? Both would be a great choice.

Definitely the HR PSU and then get the DINO and NC powersupply as the cases match the HR PSU since they are made by Trichord.

The AN IQ range work well on the REGA and in offer a different UK made approach to the Ortofon MM range.

My Hydraulic Reference is a Transcriptors but can I still put in this thread?

Just checking in as a fellow Michell owner. My Orbe SE/SME IV/Dynavector is the best TT I've owned by a country mile. The enginering is superb and we all know about the sonic capabilities of Michell TTs; my only regret is not getting a slightly more 'blingy' version. With the exception of the arm, mine's all black - including the granite slab it stands on.

Hoops and yourself are using granite as isolation- any cop?
