Description


        Since 1979, Oracle Audio has been producing state-of-the-art stereo components. Oracle's first turntable, the AC model, introduced new features and technologies to the analog world. Oracle's Delphi Mk I was introduced in 1980. The new Delphi Mk VI is the sixth generation of the Delphi's line heritage. Through the years the Delphi won numerous prestigeous awards and it has been accalimed worldwide! The Delphi Mk VI was awarded the Analog Grand Prix 2010 Gold Award from Japan, more recently Enjoy the Music.com's Best of 2014 Blue Note Award. To this day the Delphi is still Oracle's flagship product and still serves as a reference in the analog community!

          Using the finest components and design technologies, the Oracle Delphi Mk VI is exquisite in all aspects. Like its predecessors the Delphi MK VI is supported by three suspension pillars to efficiently control unwanted vibrations. It harbors a massive belt-driven platter that uses a center clamp system first introduced by Oracle back in 1979. The Delphi's floating chassis, milled from solid billets of aluminum, is an extremely rigid and inert structure supporting the tonearm and the platter. While the fabrication process of the Delphi is one of minute precision its developement process is one of science and emotion; to bring out all of the music's depth and detail. Truely the Delphi Mk VI is a work of art!
 
 
 "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
