Oracle CD 2500 MkIV Player
About the CD2500 MkIV CD player & the CD2000 MkIII CD transport
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 CD2000 MkIII and CD2500 MkIV 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 CD2500 MkIV harbors a new DAC board that uses the Burr Brown PCM1792 which allows input and output of digital data of up to 24bits/192khz. The CD player uses four independent and fully discrete analog modules, one for each of the analog signals from the PCM1792. These analog modules which have been further improved from previous versions are at the center of the music reproduction quality. The CD2500 MkIV can be used as your reference DAC for other digital sources since it features a SPDIF digital signal input. Both the CD2000 MkIII and CD2500 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!
