    MY TAKE:

    A great main bearing is crucial for best turntable performance, and Michell does a great job here. The TecnoDec is a simple, straightforward design that is both reasonably priced and musically satisfying. - Galen Carol

     

    Michell Engineering have been building quality audio turntables in Borehamwood, England for nearly 40 years, making them one of the oldest manufacturers in the industry. When you purchase a Michell product, you buy into a company that prides itself on the ability to service and maintain its products for many years to come. The GyroDec turntable, for example, has been around for over 25 years, and even its first incarnation can still be upgraded to the latest specification.

    Michell turntables are precision instruments that are built to last and designed and to reproduce sound as close as possible to the master tape.

    TecnoDec - Michell’s entry-level turntable borrows much of technology found in the more expensive turntables, and wraps it up in a more cost effective package. You’ll find the same low-noise DC motor and impedance-matched platter of the GyroDec, along with an advanced bearing, mounted on a simple solid-plinth. Beautifully simple, the TecnoDec requires very little set-up and maintenance.

    The July 2005 issue of Hi-Fi Choice Magazine ran a blind listening test on six turntables. Compared to the Clearaudio Champion, Project RPM 9X, Rega P5, Marantz TT 15, and Roksan Radius, the Michell TecnoDec scored highest overall and was the conclusive winner of the lot. Best part is that the TecnoDec was the cheapest deck too! Interestingly, it was the only deck with a DC motor. The magazine gave the Michell TecnoDec a Best Buy rating.
     

    REVIEWS:
     

    “The star though is Michell’s TecnoDec. The cheapest of the group, it’s one of the best sounding, and it’s as smart as any. Michell’s reputation for lasting quality can’t hurt either, but its crisp, precise and extended sound is the clincher.” - Hi-Fi Choice

    "Delightfully clean sound allied to superb build and finish make this the class of the mid-price vinyl field." - David Price, Hi-Fi World
