Black, with silver color metal part for DC motor. Includes SME mount gold armboard.

* This Orbe SE was originally a full Orbe, changed to Orbe SE specifications for a more compact look and less resonance from the acrylic casing.

This includes the HR precision motor power supply. The HR is a low-noise electronic power source for the DC motors. The HR features the novel Never-Connected circuit, and has a user-adjustable speed control on its back plate.

The Never Connected Circuit features:
- Revolutionary new isolating power supply design for incorporation in high performance audio equipment
- Equipment never-connected directly to the mains
- Provides total isolation from mains pollution
- Substantial and consistent improvement in sound quality
* Never Connected Concept

Michell Orbe SE :
"By eliminating much of the expensive acrylic on the Orbe, the Orbe SE offers most of the Orbe's qualities in a cheaper, smaller, and to some people aesthetically more pleasing package. An Orbe SE can always be upgraded to a full Orbe by purchasing the double plinth and dustcover.

Features:

Spider double chassis, suspended pendulum subchassis
Damped subchassis
60 mm thick massive black acrylic/vinyl platter of high inertia
Screw-down record clamp
Inverted bearing
Custom armboards available for any tonearm
High-quality standalone DC motor & new 'Never Connected' Power Supply for stable operation"

"With this new construction, spring height is easily set by rotating the knurled top part of a turret, holding the rubber part. Spring orientation is set by rotating the spring's black rubber grommet. Thus orientation and height can be set independently of each other, thanks to the split in the turret shaft."
