In the early 1970s, John Michell founded J. A. Michell Engineering and concentrated on making parts for other record player companies for nearly a decade. All that time John was focused on developing the single biggest development in turntable history.
Advancements in Design
In the 1980s, intending to isolate the sensitive parts of the turntable from sources of vibration and mechanical noise, John 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.
