Delphi MkVI Reference with Reference granite base and Turbo MkII power adaptor
The Delphi MkVI Reference is
equipped with our new MkVI Reference granite base. This new granite base is
thicker and heavier than any other previous granite base that Oracle ever
offered. With its weight reaching just a little over 40 pounds the Delphi finds
itself better anchored to its environment and this translates into a
significant sonic performance increase! The whole spectrum of the music becomes
more detailed and the imaging gains in perspective and clarity. The low
frequency range of the music gains a lot from this upgrade; there is more
authority and volume to the bass which results in an overall better tonal
balance. Those who experienced the Reference granite base have described the
change as amazing and astonishing!
Note: The MkVI Reference granite
base is available as an upgrade for existing Delphi MkV and MkVI turntables.
"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."
