In the 1980s, with the goal of isolating the sensitive parts of the turntable from sources of vibration and mechanical noise, John Michell designed a suspended turntable with a floating pendulum sub-chassis and an ingenious oil-pumping inverted main bearing, which advanced vinyl playback far beyond the competition. Today Michell designs and manufactures a suit of turntables, tonearms and cartridges that offer music lovers the opportunity to experience high-end analogue audio at a very affordable price.
