Unveiling the Essence of Vinyl: The Michell Orbe SE Bundle

When the needle drops on your favorite record, the world stands still as the pure, unadulterated sound of vinyl fills the room. For the audiophile who craves this moment of musical bliss, the Michell Orbe SE Bundle represents the pinnacle of turntable design and performance, without the flagship model's price tag. Dreamedia understands the quest for audio perfection, and we stand ready to bring the Michell Orbe SE Bundle's symphony of technology into your home theater system.

The Art of Engineering Meets Audio Fidelity

The Michell Orbe SE Bundle is a testament to the craftsmanship of Michell Engineering, a brand synonymous with exceptional turntable quality. This bundle is not just an instrument; it's a centerpiece of auditory art that takes your listening experience to new heights with its meticulously designed features:

  • Belt-Drive Mechanism: The heart of the Orbe SE is its belt-drive turntable, ensuring a smooth and consistent rotation for flawless playback.
  • Robust Construction: Boasting solid aluminum feet and a secondary acrylic base, this turntable is built to last and to impress.
  • Sophisticated Suspension: A three-point spring suspension system with height adjustment provides isolation from external vibrations, resulting in a cleaner sound.
  • Stabilized Sub Chassis: The weighted pendulum-style sub-chassis offers exceptional stability and vibration absorption, so all you hear is the music.
  • Main Bearing Excellence: An inverted oil circulating main bearing with top rotation ensures full lubrication, reduced noise, and longevity.

Uncompromising Sound Quality

At Dreamedia, we know that the nuances in sound matter. The Michell Orbe SE Bundle has been engineered to deliver reference-quality sound that will satisfy even the most discerning ears:

  • Impedance-Matched Platter: The extra heavy platter is designed to match the impedance of your vinyl records, improving speed stability and damping vibrations.
  • Isolated Motor Unit: The free-standing motor unit has no direct contact with the turntable, minimizing the transmission of noise and vibration.
  • Precision Power Supply: The Orbe controller power supply with Never Connected™ circuitry and a large toroidal transformer ensures precise speed stability.

Designed for the Connoisseur

The Michell Orbe SE Bundle isn't just about what's on the inside. Its exterior is crafted to be as aesthetically pleasing as it is functional:

  • Compact and Elegant: The turntable's compact design is both space-efficient and visually appealing, making it a standout addition to any room.
  • Record Clamp: The included screw-down record clamp exerts additional force on your vinyl, reducing resonance and ensuring every note is as the artist intended.
  • Optional Dustcovers: Choose between the SEcure Cover for total coverage or the UniCover for open-style turntables to keep your investment dust-free.

FEATURES

  • Low contact area feet: The solid aluminium feet of the turntable are shaped so the area in contact with the supporting surface is very small, this is done to minimise the transfer of vibrations from the supporting furniture into the turntable.
  • Three point spring suspension system: Three suspension towers are fixed to the secondary acrylic base to hold the suspension springs in place and provide height adjustment for the sub chassis.
  • Weighted pendulum style sub chassis: Hanging on the three suspension springs, this provides a rigid dense platform to mount the main bearing, platter and tonearm assembly, ensuring there is no movement between them, while also acting as a ‘resonance / vibration sink’ drawing away unwanted vibrations from the sensitive elements of the turntable.
  • Inverted oil circulating main bearing: Contrary to traditional designs, our main bearing has the point of rotation at the top of the assembly, not at the bottom. This orientation allows us to fully lubricate the inside of the entire bearing while the platter is turning. We achieve this by way of a modified Archimedean screw that we machine 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 waste hole drilled into the bearing spindle. Lubricating the precision parts of the main bearing in this way means that any potential for noise or vibration created by the rotation of the platter is avoided.
  • Extra heavy Impedance-matched platter: The platter material was chosen for its vibration dampening characteristics and because sonically it is a very similar material to vinyl, so it has a very neutral sound characteristic. The extra mass of the Orbe platter gives it great momentum when spinning aiding in speed stability.
  • Free standing motor unit: The motor unit used to drive the turntable is completely separate to the turntable, meaning it doesn’t touch the turntable in anyway. The only connection between the motor and the turntable is the drive belt that drives the platter. This stops any noise or vibrations created when the motor is running, getting through to the sensitive parts of the turntable.
  • Orbe controller power supply: The most sophisticated power supply we manufacture, the Orbe controller uses a large toroidal transformer, Never Connected™ circuitry and servo motor control technology to make sure the platter is always turning at the correct speed. All the time the platter is turning, the motor is reporting back what the RPM is, if this changes even slightly, the controller automatically adjusts its output to correct the change. The result is that the speed stability of an Orbe turntable is absolutely rock solid.
  • Orbe record clamp: The Orbe clamp is a screw-down design, which allows you to exert more force on to the vinyl when clamping it to the platter, than our standard clamps allow. This further helps flatten warped and uneven vinyl and eliminate resonance in the vinyl disk.
