ORACLE ORIGINE MKII
PLEASE NOTE: We import Oracle turntables to order, with custom specs, finishes, armboards and upgrades to suit the customer. Turnaround time is usually 2-4 weeks depending on factory stock and what options or upgrades you are interested in.
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
It harbours a two-bushing spindle holder which is a direct descendant of the vintage Delphi’s main bearing, many of which 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 33 1/3rd and 45 rpm.
NOTE: We supply an Australian RCM certified hi-quality linear power supply for the Origine, not the basic plug pack from overseas.
This table only version is the ideal way to get yourself a genuine made in Canada Oracle turntable ready to fit your own arm! Any of our Origin Live arms will fit the Origine, and our custom SA220 and SA330 Rega based arms will also fit with our alloy VTA base installed. If you have a Rega arm already please email us with the model so we can advise what you will need to install it. Older RB250/300 arms will drop straight in and only need a VTA adjuster which we can fabricate for you.
The plinth of the Origine turntable is equipped with one acrylic insert of the colour of your choice. It is possible to add up to two more inserts in the plinth for a total of three, either when ordering your Origine or later on as they are easy to install. The photo below shows you all the available solid colours. White and black inserts can match a black or a white plinth for a colourless Origine, or as separators between colour inserts.
