Oracle Audio Technologies Origine turntable,
tone-arm and dust cover with the Ortofon
2M blue moving magnet cartridge. The turntable is black with the single neon
green ring. The Ortofon cartridge is
pre-ordered and installed by Oracle. The NEW Oracle arm lift cue mechanism is included
in the purchase to give the option to replace the original and some people feel
a bit more clumsy arm cue mechanism.
The Origine and all accessories
is brand new and NOT assembled in the original box with accessories and manual. The unit is NOT a refurbished or recertified unit. The picture shows the look of the neon green
turntable and I am providing a picture of the new arm lift cue mechanism. The
additional pictures was my floor model to show what the turntable looks
like but know your NOT buying the one I have
pictures because the new one is in the box.
The box was opened so I can add
the new mechanism to ship with the turntable.
The unit is a 11 out of 11.
NOTE: Oracle does not include the
tonearm/turntable cable to the amplifier with the item and this is required
when purchasing for installation. This is
normal for the Origine turntable.
Shipping – Included with purchase of the turntable
within Canada & most contiguous US states(lower 48 states) only. Shipping
cost is added to buyers in Alaska, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Guam and Virgin Islands.
The Origine turntable was created
with one goal in mind; to answer the historical demand for an affordable,
quality built and long-lasting record player from Oracle Audio! Just like for their
other products the Origine turntable is 100% designed, crafted and assembled at
our factory in Canada. Although the Origine is at the entry point of our line
of products it maintains the high standards of excellence that is expected from
With its outline shaped like the footprint
of our flagship Delphi turntable, with its feet system derived from their CD
players and with the platter inherited from the Paris turntable, the Origine
carries the signature of Oracle’s design. It harbors a two-bushing spindle
holder which is a direct descendant of the vintage Delphi’s main bearing, who
are still functioning well today after 30+ years! The Origine is equipped with an outboard
synchronous AC motor that drive the platter using a belt around its perimeter.
The two-step pulley of the Origine allows playback at 331/3 and 45 rpm.
The turntable comes equipped with
the new Origine tonearm and with or without a supplied Ortofon Blue cartridge; a
moving magnet phono cartridge. This unipivot tonearm is cleverly designed with
its pivot contact point set on the same plane as the record contact point with
the stylus and with the tracking force counterweight for added stability while
tracking the grooves. The compliance of a phono cartridge, or the “springiness”
of the cantilever/motor suspension assembly,
plays an important role with unipivot tonearms. Oracle addresses this issue by using a
movable arm tube weight that we nicknamed “the olive” which allows to vary the
tonearm’s effective mass. This adjustability enables to make a better match of
compliance and effective mass, thus allowing the use of a very wide range of
phono cartridges with the Origine. The Origine tonearm has internal wiring from
