Oracle Paris Mk5 Turntable
 
Colour - Gloss Red
 
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. 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 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!
 
"Now I was on a roll, and it occurred to me, without my having to think too hard: This player rocks! Indeed, the Oracle Paris played up-tempo music with apparent freedom from the timing distortions that make other players sound slow, or temporally muddled and indistinct." - Art Dudley, Stereophile, Oct 2011
