“Sopra n°3 clearly inaugurates a new era for the “Premium High End” by taking into account new performance criteria. Compact, modern, a pure design, character… all these are essential factors to ensure perfect integration into your interior.”

“Equipped with best midrange drivers ever developed by Focal, with the NIC and TMD technologies, Sopra n°2 pushes back the limits of sound reproduction in terms of transparency in a very compact enclosure. Indeed, unlike Utopia, which is extravagant by essence and where size is by no means a constraint, Sopra aims for maximal compactness to ensure easy integration into reasonably sized rooms.”

Oracle Origine Turntable – Coming Soon

Posted on June 6th, 2016

The new Oracle Audio Origine turntable was created with one goal in mind; answering the historical demand for an affordable, quality built and long-lasting record player from Oracle. The Origine was meant to be the entry point, at the origin of our product lineup, while maintaining the high standards of excellence that one learns to expect from an Oracle product!

With its outline shaped like the footprint of our flagship Delphi turntable, its feet system derived from our CD players and with the platter inherited from the Paris turntable, the Origine carries the signature of Oracle’s design. It harbors a two-bushing spindle holder which is a direct descendant of the vintage Delphi’s main bearing, who are still functioning well today after 30+ years! The Origine is equipped with a outboard synchronous AC motor that drive the platter using a belt around its perimeter.

The Origine turntable comes equipped with a brand new Origine tonearm and with or without an Ortofon 2M Blue phono cartridge. The Origine tonearm is a cleverly designed unipivot tonearm whose pivot contact point was set on the same plane as the record contact point with the stylus and with the tracking force counterweight for added stability while tracking the grooves. Unipivot tonearms are known to be sensitive to the cartridge’s compliance and the Origine tonearm addresses the issue with an adjustable arm tube weight to compensate the cartridge’s compliance, again for increased stability. The Origine tonearm is wired with Cardas phono wiring.

Estimated retail is the $2500 range and we should see our first units by month’s end.
