“With the improvements in the bearing, and especially with the addition of the silicone damping system, the Mk.VI edition not only retains the Oracle Delphi’s position as one of the most beautiful turntables in the world; it reestablishes it as a formidable contender in and well beyond its price class.”

-Michael Fremer, Stereophile March 2010

Specifications

Suspension:

Delphi sub-chassis / platter / tonearm assembly is suspended by a tripedal mounting, which eliminates room vibrations. Each suspension tower assembly combines 12 different components, using 7 different mechanical filters, all working as a whole to efficiently control unwanted vibrations.

Bearing assembly:

The traditional two bushing system has been replaced by a new system using six precision surfaced nylon screws. With this, Oracle reaches the highest level of rotational accuracy.

Motor drive electronics and drive belt:

Oracle selected a specially designed AC synchronous motor. The Delphi MkVI features a dual current drive circuitry. This provides maximum start-up torque energy and minimum efficient operational energy, which guarantees lowest possible motor vibration. The molded belt plays an important role in maintaining maximum speed stability.

Record / Platter:

The maximum rigidity of the 4kg (8.8 pound) platter is immune to vibration by distributing most of the mass around its outer edge. The flywheel effect increases momentum. Record coupling system (standard): Oracle pioneered the now well established “record clamp system” to solve specific vinyl disc “warp” problems.

Hard acrylic mat:

The Oracle acrylic mat made from specially formulated polymer shows better matching characteristics (impedance) with the vinyl disc.

Sub-chassis:

Oracle demonstrates that superior engineering can also be aesthetic. The hand brushed aluminum with a clear lacquer coated skeletal sub-chassis will dissipate unwanted energy through efficient coupling and clamping methods. Maximum rigidity, minimal surface area and energy control are key design.

Plinth:

The standard plinth is Clear Acrylic. An optional Black Granite plinth is available for an extra charge.

Power Supply:

The Delphi MkVI comes standard with a regular power supply. The optional Turbo Power Supply MkII is the result of an extensive development and performance comparisons between reference elements such as special batteries and monstrous power source. The Oracle Turbo Power supply outperformed them all! The turbo power source transforms an outstanding performance into a wonderful musical experience. Both power supplies ship with a removable power cord.

Oracle/SME Tonearm (Optional):

The Oracle/SME tonearm provides superbly detailed and transparent sound, making the music seem more alive and open. This tonearm offers differing pivot to stylus distances and was designed for the needs of a broader market requiring alternative arm length and interchangeable shell facility. The internal wiring of the tonearm is upgraded to Van den Hul MCS 150 silver litz wire.

Dimensions: 363 X 475 X 150 mm
14.5 X 19 X 6 in
Weight: with acrylic base: 16 kg - 35 pounds
