Ukishima Gyro Aluminium – Michell Gyrodec and Orbe Performance Pack
The Michell Gyrodec Aluminium Performance Pack is a specific performance set, designed to compliment the aesthetic of the beautiful Michell Gyrodec and Orbe turntables. It comprises three modified aluminium and stainless steel Ukishima 6 feet and a turned billet aluminium motor spacer to compensate for the feet being 22mm taller than the standard cones. It offers a sound upgrade and additional damping for the adjustable spring mechanism in the standard unit.
The Gyrodec has springs to suspend the turntable and allow for levelling adjustment. The springs can be quite microphonic, so the damping afforded by the magnetic suspension helps to reduce this noise. It also lets the turntable settle quickly to stillness, where the undamped springs let the setup bounce around for several seconds, when you release the downward pressure from the record clamp. The cork faced feet also have a better grip on slippery surface like polished stone, so the turntable does not slide around so much when used.
We know the Gyrodec very well and love the way it looks, so it was important to compliment the unique aesthetic of this iconic turntable and we think we have achieved this. The materials and shapes really look the part and could have come with the dec as standard equipment. In tests the feet made considerably more sound improvement than spending an extra £500 on the stylus. The magnetic field is also well contained and does extend anywhere near the sensitive signal path, so we are confident you would not be disappointed with this product on any level.”
We have a video to show how to install the performance packs, in can be viewed here .
If you have a lid or heavy platter on your Gryodec or Orbe you may need the heavy duty model. If in doubt contact us first on firstname.lastname@example.org
This set work really well with our Pylons for a serious sound upgrade.
