I am considering to order a J A Michell Gyrodec SE Turntable (before Brexit happens). I have a Thorens 321 with a SME IV arm and an Ortofon Cadenza Blue installed now. The Thorens - I bought it almost 30 years ago - could be the weakest link in this set up. I had already put the Thorens on a custom fit platform and I had added a dampening ring on the outside of the platter. It improved sound a bit. The current set up sounds great, especially voices with sparse instrumentation. I am also happy with the dynamic response and amplification, but I do have the feeling that orchestral/classical music and records with dense, multi-instrumentation could perhaps benefit from a bit more resolution. I would really appreciate if you could share your experience with the Mitchell to give a better feeling if it is worth it. I will have to install the SME IV with cartridge on the Mitchell and returning could be some hassle. Thanks!
