The Origine turntable
(Black Plinth / Neon Blue Insert)
The new Origine turntable was created with one goal in mind;
to answer the historical demand for an affordable, quality built and
long-lasting record player from Oracle Audio! Just like for our other products
the Origine turntable is 100% designed, crafted and assembled at our factory in
Canada. Although the Origine is at the entry point of our line of products it
maintains the high standards of excellence that is expected from Oracle Audio!
With its outline shaped like the footprint of our flagship
Delphi turntable, with 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 an outboard
synchronous AC motor that drive the platter using a belt around its perimeter.
The two-step pulley of the Origine allows playback at 331/3 and 45 rpm.
The turntable comes equipped with the new Origine tonearm
and with or without a supplied Ortofon 2M Blue phono cartridge. This unipivot
tonearm is cleverly designed with its pivot contact point 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. The compliance of
a phono cartridge, or the “springiness” of the cantilever/motor suspension
assembly, plays an important role with unipivot tonearms. We
address this issue by using a movable arm tube weight that we nicknamed “the
olive” which allows to vary the tonearm’s effective mass. This adjustability
enables to make a better match of compliance and effective mass, thus allowing
the use of a very wide range of phono cartridges with the Origine. The Origine
tonearm has internal wiring from Cardas Audio!
We are sincerely hoping that you are as excited as we are
about this new record player!
