Here’s a little something we made earlier

18 July 2017

One of our favourite things to do at Adventures is build turntables. It’s not quite as much fun as listening to them, but it’s mighty close. And this Michell Orbe was certainly a challenge.

So we thought we would share a couple of pics of our latest creation. Painstakingly re-built from scratch, our customer provided the parts; we provided the genius.

Here’s just some of the features integral to the Orbe:

  • Double chassis, suspended pendulum subchassis
  • Damped subchassis
  • 60 mm thick massive high inerta acrylic/vinyl platter
  • Screw-down record clamp, compatible with standard and 180g audiophile pressings
  • Inverted oil-pumping bearing
  • Custom arm board
  • High-quality standalone DC motor with tacho feedback speed control
  • Orbe Controller NC motor power supply with Never-Connected circuit

Phew!
