We searched high and low for a turntable company with designs that would turn heads, and we found it: Michell Engineering. Launched in 1977, John Michell sought to create a turntable designed to be as much an artistic masterpiece as as a precision audiophile instrument. He did it. The Michell Reference Electronic served as the company's foundation and the blueprint for subsequent research and development. The fruits of which we are able to enjoy.
