JA Michell Orbe SE Turntable
At lower-than-audio frequencies, the arm should be made able to freely follow the groove’s warps and excentricities, so as not to damage LP or cartridge, and this without inducing any spurious signals into the cartridge’s generator.
Only when these demands are fulfilled can the stylus trace the actual information embedded in the record’s groove walls.
Orbe SE DetailsBy eliminating much of the expensive acrylic, the Michell Orbe SE offers most of the Orbe's qualities in a cheaper, smaller, and to some people aesthetically more pleasing package. An Orbe SE can always be upgraded to a full Orbe by purchasing the double plinth and dustcover. When teamed with an RB250 or RB300 tonearm, the Orbe SE is a surprisingly affordable entry to the Orbe-class of performance.

The Orbe has an amazing blend of virtues. Powerful bass and dynamics, detailed midrange and treble as well rhythmic ability on par with the LP12 and unsurpassed soundstaging. It easily betters the Gyrodec and you'd have to drop a serious amount of money to better it, easily a final destination for vinyl.
