TecnoDec is Michell's entry-level turntable but don't be fooled; this is a high-end turntable that shares many features developed for its bigger sibling, the GyroDec. Vibration dampening, an impedance-matched platter, inverted oil circulating the main bearing, and a superb free-standing motor unit are all included.
TecnoDec is an unsuspended turntable that utilizes materials and technologies not normally found in entry-level turntables, allowing you to hear much more from your music.
Pure Sorbothane feet inserts. Designed to isolate the turntable from structural vibration in the supporting surface.
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.
Free-standing motor unit. Machined from a solid billet of aircraft-grade aluminum, the turntable motor unit is designed to minimize any transfer of tiny vibrations created when the motor is running to the sensitive parts of the turntable. When in operation the only connection between the motor and the rest of the turntable is the drive belt turning the platter. This innovation lifts the performance of the TecnoDec and sets it apart from the competition.
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.
