Oracle Audio Technologies Alexandria Turntable with Grado, WOW [Expired]


no longer for sale

Up for grabs is a rare Oracle Alexandria turntable from the 80's -90's. 

It has a floating platter/tonearm suspended by 3 springs which are accessible through the silver machined knobs on the plinth.  The RPMs are adjustable electronically via buttons also no the plinth and there is a fine pitch adjustment knob on the underside of the table.  There are 3 adjustable spikes supporting the cabinet but they are dull enough so they won't ruin your furniture.  

The cartridge is a Grado and is in very good shape.  Im unsure of the exact mode but it's moving magnet.  If you desire a new cartridge I can order and calibrate any model you desire from ClearAudio or Sumiko.   Just email or call for a new price.  

The acrylic cover is in very nice shape although it has your typical surface scratches or scuffs.  There are no cracks or broken pieces at all and it looks very presentable.  

The original bubble level was lost so I've replaced it with a close match. 

On the back your find surprisingly high quality gold plated connectors which will allow you to use any cable you'd like.  Ive upgraded the power supply to a unit with higher power reserves and better filtering.  

The tonearm looks to be from Audio Technica but I'm not that sure.  It does have all the necessary adjustments for antiskate and tracking force.  

The belt was replaced for many years of reliable service.  

The record clamp is the usual Oracle high quality aluminum version which looks very impressive and the threads will ensure the record is securely clamped down.  

The wood cabinet is in very nice shape and Im sure the new owners will be pleased with the overall presentation as it is very impressive.  

I dont have the original box but it will be professional packaged for safe arrival. The platter and accessories will be separately packaged in a single box.  If your unfamiliar with the setup of a turntable I can help on the phone or via facetime when it arrives.  Ive done this a bunch of times with great success. 

Available for audition or pickup in my home listening room in Ridgewood, NJ or pickup in my office in Union Square NYC.  

WHO WE ARE 

Skyfi.nyc is a small startup business specializing in the purchase, reconditioning and reselling of select high end audio equipment.  We only buy equipment the we admire and are passionate about.  No mid-fi, no gimmicks and no junk.  

Each piece of equipment is cosmetically restored and fully tested in our well-equipped lab by an engineer with 30+ years of experience in the Hifi world.  If it does not meet or exceed the original manufactures specifications, it will not be sold.  We are select about the equipment we purchase, focusing on mostly analog, high-build quality, American and European built units.

Through our sister company, which is an authorized dealer for McIntosh, Audio Research, Sonus Faber, ClearAudio, Project and Sony ES, we have access to OEM parts and service support.  If you are local and are looking for any new equipment for the above mentioned manufacturers, please drop us a line as we can arrange both sales and professional installation in the tri-state area


PURCHASING GUIDELINES

If you would like to make an offer, please don't email or message us unless you are looking to trade something in.  

If we are accepting offers, you will see a button on the listing page to do so.  Please use it, as it is very hard to track offers through email or messaging.  This way, we are all also better protected.   

PAYMENTS

We prefer working through PayPal, which allows you to use a credit card or bank transfer.  We do not charge extra for any payment fees.  You can also send us a personal check (which will need to clear before shipping), certified check, money order or wire transfer.  International clients without access to PayPal should use a bank wire transfer. 

TRADE IN POLICY 

We accept trade-ins of equal or lesser value under certain conditions.  Simply ask and let us know the exact model, condition and what accessories are included such as a box, remote, manual, etc.  We will only consider high-end equipment from mainstream manufacturers such as McIntosh, Mark Levinson, Audio Research, Krell, etc. and will typically pass on displays, projectors, receivers, dated processors and mid-fi equipment of any type.  We will offer a fair value for your equipment, but keep in mind we are running a business and will need to be able to sell the equipment at a profit after investing a great deal of time and resources in testing, certifying, repairing, cleaning and packaging the incoming equipment.  If you are looking for top dollar we suggest attempting to sell it directly to an end user.  

SELL US YOUR GEAR (Working or Broken)

We will also purchase your used or broken gear and arrange pickup if you are in our local market.  Just drop us a note for a quote, but be sure to include the condition and what is included.  

HOW TO VISIT US

We are currently operating from a residence in Ridgewood, NJ.  You are welcome to make an appointment if there is a piece of equipment you would like to see in operation before or after purchase.  We have a well-equipped, dedicated listening room with tons of equipment of all makes and models.  We are not a store, so please don’t make an appointment if you are just curious as to how a speaker or piece of equipment sounds.  In essence, no tire kickers please.  

If you are in NYC and cannot make it out to Ridgewood, we can arrange pickup in Union Square (14th Street) after the purchase.   You can call or text  (646) 852-2073 with any questions or to schedule an appointment.  We can also arrange to install, calibrate and tune the gear in your listening room if you are in the local area.  This is super useful when purchasing large speakers or heavy amplifiers.  It is also great for ensuring your new turntable is setup correctly in its final resting place.
