Collection

We make a definite distinction between the early Transcriptor HR originals till 1973 and the Michell produced ones between '73 and '77. Under the Transcriptor heading you will also find the precursors of the HR, whereas under Michell you'll find even later offspring like the Electronic Reference in Hydraulic version. In the overview foto's of both sections you can click on any turntable to view details and specifics.

#10 Michell 'the Bronze'

#10, the Bronze, is one of our colored projects. Note the bronze platter and mirrored upper motordeck and arm mounting plate. It was almost over the top, literally, as we had to put the arm in the highest possible position in order to work with the acryl damping platter on top.
