Delphi MkVI Reference
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.
For more information about the Delphi turntable please visit the Delphi MkVI Classic product page.
"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."
