Oracle Audio Technologies Paris Mk V with the Turbo Mk 2 Power
Supply and Benz Micro MC Gold low output moving coil cartridge. The Oracle Paris Carbon tone-arm and dust cover is included with
the turntable. Calling this a display model because it may have at most 5 hours of playing time since we had the higher end turntable
hooked up to demonstrate. The Paris
turntable is NOT a refurbished or recertified unit and was ordered new. The turntable/tone-arm is in immaculate
condition as well as the Turbo power supply. No scratches on the turntable or the power
supply. The dust cover is very clean for
a display model. Very very light cleaning
marks. Benz Micro MC Gold cartridge was factory ordered and installed. Setup and alignment was completed with the Dr.
Feikhert Adjustment Plus System which is setup with their record and analog to digital(AD)
processor and computer software. This
takes all the guessing out of the tone-arm VTA and cartridge alignment to be scientifically
accurate and sonically very good. The
procedure takes 2-3 hours. Included is a
new syringe of spindle bearing oil. The tone-arm silicone bath is saran wrapped and taped to prevent leaking for
shipping. Manual, all parts and accessories
for the turntable included with the turntable with original box. The box for
the Turbo power supply will be substituted.
The unit is a 9.5 out of 10.
NOTE: Oracle does not
include the tonearm/turntable cable with the item ans this is required when purchasing
and for use. This ir normal for the
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.
Paris MK V
While re-thinking the new MkV Oracle Audio felt it was very
important to maintain the design signature of the original Paris turntable.
Everything else is a total redesign! The Oracle mechanical design concepts are
always intimately linked to the overlapping of different materials interacting
within a same assembly for an optimal control of vibrations and resonances. The
Paris MkV follows that same construction philosophy. Compared with the Delphi
MkVI which has a very sophisticated full floating spring suspension and micro
vibration stabiliser system, the Paris suspension is very efficient while being
much simpler. It has been completely redesigned taking into account the
findings that led to the development of the Delphi MkVI. The platter and
tonearm are mounted on a semi floating chassis using a suspension made of
fibreglass rods and sorbothane rings. The combination of these materials
contributes to virtually eliminate the access of unwanted vibrations to the
semi floating chassis where the platter, the tone arm and the phono cartridge
The Paris tonearm features a
micro vibration damping system specially developed by Oracle to eliminate
undesirable resonances and vibrations generated within the tonearm itself due
to the interaction of the needle with the disc. The combination of the
suspension efficiency coupled with the micro vibration control system provides
true isolation from the external environment allowing the stylus to retrieve
the most accurate information from the record groove. The Paris is a belt
driven turntable and has a low voltage synchronous AC motor. The drive
electronics of the Paris has a very high precision oscillator circuit which
creates a perfect sine wave signal to feed the motor ensuring high rotational
accuracy for optimal speed stability. This system also isolates the drive
electronics from line voltage impurities and fluctuations. The above features
combined to the choice of materials are the essence of a high performance
turntable and together explain the Paris outstanding music reproduction!
Turbo Power Supply MkII
is highly recommended for a maximum performance level!
