ORACLE AUDIO PARIS MK V TURNTABLE
About the Paris MkV While re-thinking the new MkV we 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.Version A - Paris MkV turntable with regular power supplyVersion B - Paris MkV turntable with regular power supply and Paris carbon tonearm Version C - Paris MkV turntable with Turbo power supply MkII Version D - Paris MkV turntable with Turbo power supply MkII and Paris carbon tonearm Option - Paris clear acrylic dust cover with hinges (when ordered with the Paris)
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 are interacting.
The Paris tonearm, available as an option, 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
Drive: AC synchronous motor, belt driven, external power adapter
Platter: Two piece platter consisting of an aluminum hub supporting the main acrylic platter.
Plinth dimension: (WxDxH) 19,5 x 15 x 5 inches.
The height measured at the top of tonearm is 5"; the height becomes 6" with the dustcover installed.
Speed selection: Two buttons for 33 and 45 rpm, adjustable with potentiometer.
Suspension system: Adjustable, semi-floating sub-chassis on dual rod suspension system made of fibreglass and sorbothane decoupling.
Tonearm mounting specs:
Maximum center to center tonearm length accepted: 228 mm.
* The Paris tonearm has for basic structure the Project 9CC carbon tonearm. Oracle Audio developed the micro vibration silicone damping device for this tonearm which greatly enhances its performance. The Project 9cc damping kit is offered as an upgrade for anyone who owns a Project 9cc tonearm!
