Oracle analogue and digital products have always been designed and built as "musical instruments" that can stand the test of time. It is our belief that achieving simplicity in design is a combination of knowledge and common sense. A properly designed device creates its own form; one that reflects the beauty of its function. True artistry combines these elements by means of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.
Many of the problems that affect the accurate reproduction of recorded music derive from unwanted internal or external vibration. To address this issue the CD 2000 MkIII and CD 2500 Mk IV use a massive aluminum floating chassis and a Delrin decoupling system of the cd drive. Furthermore, our unique suspension and disc clamping systems originally used in our analog turntables, have been adapted for use in our "State of the Art" CD Players.
The CD 2500 Mk IV harbors a new DAC board that uses the BurrBrown PCM1792 wich allows input and output of digital data of up to 24bits/192khz. The CD player uses four independant and fully discrete analog modules, one for each of the analog signals from the PCM1792. These analog modules wich have been further improoved from previous versions are at the center of the music reproduction quality. The CD 2500 Mk IV can be used as your reference DAC for other digital sources since it features a SPDIF digital signal input. Both the CD 2000 MkIII and CD 2500 Mk IV have had their power supply stage totally redesigned. There is better realism, more dynamics and we are closer to a true analog-like sound than ever!
