The Gyro SE is a small footprint variation of the Gyrodec that delivers an almost identical performance to its larger sibling. A rigid acrylic spyder replaces the full-sized plinth from the Gyrodec. The Gyro SE is Michell's best-selling turntable providing a neutral, reference presentation while taking up less space.

Features:

Three-point spring suspension system
The three suspension towers fixed to the acrylic base hold the suspension springs in place and provide height adjustment for the sub chassis.

Impedance-matched platter with solid brass weights
The Delrin material used in the Gyro SE platter was chosen for its vibration dampening characteristics. Sonically it is very similar to vinyl, therefore it doesn’t add colouration of its own to maintain a neutral signature. The brass weights provide extra mass to the platter and more momentum when spinning. This provides a significant improvement in speed stability and keeps wow and flutter to a minimum.

Free standing motor unit
Machined from a solid billet of aircraft grade aluminium and decoupled from the rest of the turntable, the DC motor unit is designed to minimize transfer of tiny vibrations to sensitive components. The only thing connecting the motor to the turntable itself is the drive belt connected to the platter. This allows for low-noise and increased micro dynamics.

Inverted oil circulating main bearing
Ingenious design resulted in the creation of an inverted main bearing that has the point of rotation at the top of the assembly. This allows full lubrication of the entire bearing during operation. This is accomplished by using a modified Archimedean screw that is machined 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 hole drilled into the bearing spindle. This avoids potential for noise or vibration created by the rotation of the platter.

Weighted pendulum style sub chassis
Hanging on the three suspension springs, this sub chassis provides a rigid dense platform to mount the main bearing, platter and tonearm assembly. This ensures there is no movement between them while also acting as a vibration sink drawing away unwanted resonances from the turntable.

Low contact area feet
The solid aluminum feet provide minimal contact area with the equipment rack or supporting surface to minimize the transfer of vibration from external sources.

Adjusting between 33 and 45 RPM
Changing speed is simply done by moving the belt between the two steps provided on the motor pulley.
