I'm not sure it sounds any better than a standard one. Nor do I care, I hardly use it. The subchassis-mounted motor is neat, though. I may try it on the Orbe one day.

I can't get mine to bounce 'right' but it will do until I have more time.
Are you sure that all layers of the deck are perfectly level, starting with the support it is on? That is a typical root cause when the correct bounce cannot be attained.

Werner,
I don't want to hijack this thread, but if you ever want to sell that Gyro, please let me know.
With regard to bounce, I have the TT set up in my bedroom as a temporary location while I do some building work downstairs. Once the TT is in its permanent location, I will put it on a wall-mounted shelf and level it properly using a good quality level.

No. I have an Orbe, and then I have something half-DIY which resembles a Gyro SE, with a Maxon motor and a supply of my own design.

Hi Werner!

Interesting Gyro you've got there. Is it an early Gert Pedersen upgrade you've mounted on your Gyro SE?

No.

When the Orbe launched in 1995 I profitted by picking up a well-used GyroDec MkII with a new RB-300. Before that date second hand Michells were a rarity over here.
My Gyro was functional, but had cosmetic damage. Throughout the years I got to know John Michell (made his original website), and started replacing parts of my Gyro with new ones. In the end I had a nearly-new Gorbe in the living room and an almost complete kit of old Gyro parts in the basement. So I completed that kit and resurrected the Gyrodec MkII, moved house, put it in the office, and never used it.

Then I got interested in the Pedersen mods, ordered them, and shortly after adding them to the Gyro I withdrew as, clearly, I was never going to finish the job properly and get a cosmetically acceptable result. So what you see is a 30% Pedersen with my own motor and then a custom paint job.

The next thing I want to try is an eddy current brake. There is already an aluminium brake disc underneath the platter. I just need to get into 3D printing to get a scaffold for the magnets.
