Orbe SE

*no arm on this turntable

By eliminating much of the expensive acrylic, the Michell 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. When teamed with an RB250 or RB300 tonearm, the Orbe SE is a surprisingly affordable entry to the Orbe-class of performance.

  • Spider double chassis, suspended pendulum subchassis
  • Damped subchassis
  • 60 mm thick massive acrylic/vinyl platter of high inertia
  • Screw-down record clamp
  • Inverted bearing
