    Its true. Vinyl replay is back big time.

    With todays Daily Telegraph is a insert mag called Telegraph Luxury. In amongst all the Cartier, Dior and Dolce & Gabbana, is a Michell Gyro Se with TechnoArm and Lyra Argo Cart.

    "Phono Sex - A turntable thast looks as good as it sounds"

    They are obviously out to settle the LP12 argument once & for all. It must be rubbish or they would have featured that and not the Gyro.
    Just coz you got the power... that don't mean you got the right.

    mmmmm I especially like the piece of bell wire and the painted lego block on the back! Pure class. Why havn't Bently thought of something like that for their dashboard instruments?

    It's the dps somethingorother.German. Uses a specially light platter for some reason best known to the manufactuers than me, and the plinth is made of the same stuff they make train floors from in Germany :p

    About 4 thousand quid.... andI think the Schroder arm (yes it's wood) is about another 2 grand.

    Forgot to put lottery ticket on again

    yeah, the Gyro is a better LOOKING tt than an LP12 agree with that, does it sound better though, no doubt that'll be up to the individual, if he likes "pure utter pish" then the LP12 has it

    You just can't argue with a manufacturer who's attention to detail even extends to painting the lego!

    Definitely should have been the Orbe SE, way sexier than the Gyrodeck.

    yea the same arm as i have. and upgrading to the orbe is no big problem. i prefer to leave alone thanks i've learnt in the past to leave be when you have a sound that you like
